This is a brilliant orange-yellow rose petal color with a very fine, profuse and sustained mousse. The nose is characterized by small red berries, mainly currant. On the palate the wine is vigorous and well balanced. A fine, fresh, fruity wine with well-integrated tannins and a hint of spice on the lengthy finish.
Ruinart Rosé is produced from a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay from the best of recent vintages. All of the fruit is from premiers crus vineyards. Grapes from the estate vineyards in Sillery and Brimont (ancestral home of the Ruinart family) are joined by carefully selected grapes from other premiers crus vineyards in the Côte de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. The grapes for Ruinart are selected basket by basket at the source, and only the finest premiers crus are used.
Fragrant with raspberry and hibiscus, this is a vibrant rose. Light pink in color, the wine has touches of sweetness that don't get in the way of its powerful personality. It shares the Middle Eastern spice notes of the Blanc de Blancs, here matched with delicate red fruit. Pour it with lacquered duck. Wine & Spirits
There's a smoky undertow to this lively rose, mixing with hints of ripe black cherry, guava, biscotti and spice. Elegant overall thanks to the fine balance and detailed, creamy texture. Wine Spectator
I found a batch number on the bottle, which in this case is LAGZM, so I’ll relax my no review of NV without some sort of cuvee/batch/disgorgement identification policy. Strawberry/cherry, a little spice, aniseed, roses – it’s what you might call a red wine-like style. Soft and fluffy with ripe fruit, though not sweet, a fine tingling bubble and cherry fruited finish. Vinous and flavoursome. Great to drink too. A beautiful wine to my tastes.
