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.
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.
