Blend and Origin
Ruinart Dom Ruinart 2006
This wine comprises 100% grand cru chardonnay – 63% from Côte des Blancs and 37% from Montagne de Reims. A very cold winter and a hot summer defined 2006, and spring frosts caused only minimal damage. A July heatwave was followed by a cold, wet August, which replenished the soil. A hot and sunny period in early September accelerated the ripening of the abundant harvest.
