Champagne Ruinart Blanc de Blancs

Very impressed with this, the current release of the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs. It’s immediately accessible, and obviously delicious, but it also has a serious side to it. Very skilful blending and winemaking here. Not cheap, at around £50 street price, but really fine and beautifully packaged, too (in clear glass, so preferably try to find a boxed product that won’t have suffered light strike.

Champagne Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV France
12.5% alcohol
This is beautiful stuff. There’s some lovely richness with citrus, pear and white peach with a really nice brightness and crispness. The core here is linear, refined citrus fruit, with fine spiciness adding complexity. Generous, but also very fresh and detailed. Complex, but with no rough edges. It walks the tightrope between sweet fruitiness and crisp precision really well. Accessible but also quite serious. 93/100
