Ruinart 'R' de Ruinart Brut Champagne
Country: France, Champagne
Tasting Notes: This blend of chardonnay elegance with delicate pinot noir structure and meunier fruitiness yields a champagne with an enveloping texture, in fresh notes evocative of patisserie. Ruinart Brut is the very first expression of the Ruinart taste.
Shimmering yellow and gold colour. Autumn and summer aromas, with subtle fruity notes of apple and apricot, as well as hazelnut and raw almond. A touch of complexity is added with hints of elderflower and coriander seeds. Intense aromas of brioche and biscuits. A harmonious and persistent roundness envelops the palate. The final note reminds us of the presence of chardonnay in the blend, with its characteristic freshness.
Varietal: Blend of 40% Chardonnay, 49% Pinot Noir & 11% Pinot Meunier
Pairing: Scallop carpaccio with raw and pickled Daikon radishes spiked with Douglas fir broth & fennel seeds. Crispy soft-boiled eggs, watercress butter and parsnips in different textures. Bresse poultry with lime and roasted turnips
