Product DetailsThis vintage is a unique interpretation of the Ruinart style. Chardonnay, known in Champagne as the “prince of grapes,” develops a pure and flinty expression, which Ruinart harnesses to perfection in this magnum. Of all the champagne grapes, chardonnay takes the longest to develop its elegant flavors. That is why Ruinart ages its vintage champagnes on lees for 8-10 years.

Blend and Origin
Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2004
This blanc de blancs is made exclusively of chardonnay from grand cru vineyards – 69% from Côtes des Blancs and 31% from Montagne de Reims. 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.
