WINE REVIEW: RUINART ROSÉ

BLEND – VINIFICATION:

Blend constructed on a base of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, mostly classified as Premiers Crus with 20 to 25% coming from wines reserved from the 2 previous years.

45% of the Chardonnay is from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards
55% of the Pinot Noir is from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne vineyards, 18 to 19% of which has been made into red wine.

VINIFICATION:

• Hand picked
• Fermentation in temperature-regulated stainless steel fermenters
• For the red wine, short maceration and light extraction
• Full malolactic fermentation
• Dosage: 9 g/l

TASTING NOTES:

The colour is a beautiful pomegranate pink with some orange reflections; the effervescence has persistent foam; there is an intense aromatic profile on the nose with hints of tropical fruits including raspberries, and strawberries and rose; on the palate the attack is distinct and full, cradled by a gentle effervescence; the balance brings together a delightful freshness and full body, expressed by an elegant touch of mint and grapefruit.

FROM FLUTE TO PLATE:

Ruinart Rosé is a delight to drink throughout a meal from aperitif to dessert.
