Product DetailsChardonnay is the “golden thread” that runs through all Ruinart champagne. Sourced from grand cru vineyards, this grape is expressed in a beautifully restrained and fresh way in the 2004 vintage. Of all the champagne grapes, chardonnay takes the longest to develop its elegant flavours. That is why Ruinart ages its vintage champagnes on lees for between eight and 10 years.

The grapes vary in their fruitiness, richness, freshness and minerality depending on the terroir in which they are grown, and in this vintage Cellar Master Frédéric Panaïotis has blended a champagne with complexity and structure.
