Indulge in Luxury: The Exceptional Dom Ruinart 2010 Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut
Ruinart can lay claim to being the oldest established Champagne house, founded in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart. They produce some of the finest champagnes in the world, and are especially renowned for their Blanc de Blancs. We are proud to say that for the first time in our history - albeit much shorter than Ruinart's - we have secured a small amount of their vintage Blancs de Blancs and the house's Prestige Cuvée - Dom Ruinart.
Dom Ruinart 2010 Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut is made entirely from Chardonnay grapes, grown in the famous Côte des Blancs region of Champagne. The grapes are handpicked and then carefully selected to ensure only the best are used for this particular cuvée. The 2010 vintage was aged for 9 years on its lees, resulting in a more complex and textured Champagne.
When pouring the Champagne, you'll immediately notice its pale yellow colour and fine, delicate bubbles. On the nose, the champagne has a beautiful floral character and inviting notes of citrus, peach, and apricot. There are also pronounced autolytic characters, such as brioche and toast, thanks to the extended aging on the lees.
When tasting Dom Ruinart 2010 Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut, you'll be struck by its refined and elegant taste. The initial flavours are bright and refreshing, with a crisp acidity that's balanced by the slight sweetness of brioche. The marriage of zesty grapefruit, fleshy pear, and chalky minerality, as well as notes of honey and toasted almonds, results in a Champagne that is so complex, rich, and satisfying that you will want to savour every sip.
