Blend and Origin
R de Ruinart Brut Non Vintage
Blended from 40% chardonnay, 50-55% pinot noir and 5-10% meunier, the grapes used to create R de Ruinart come mostly from Côte des Blancs, a chalk-rich area famous for its superior chardonnay, and Vallée de la Marne, which grows the pinot noir and meunier that add a soft fruitiness to the champagne. The cellar master also adds 20-25% reserve wine from the two years prior.
Additional delivery charges may apply. This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
More to try
Simplicity is key
R de Ruinart’s light fruit flavours and crisp edge cry out for buttery or citrussy dishes. For a starter, serve with seared scallops, tossed in oil and lemon.
The champagne’s crystal-clear minerality cuts through the butteriness of classic sole meunière.
Pair with creamy cow’s-milk cheeses that have a short ripening time, such as Chaource or Langres.
