"R" DE RUINART
"R" de Ruinart is a blend made up of 40% Chardonnay, 57% Pinot Noir, and 3% Pinot Meunier, 20 to 25% of which are wines reserved from the two previous years. At first, the nose is delicate, fresh and fruity, filled with aromas of pears, Bosc apples, apricots, hazelnuts, and fresh almonds. Several floral and spicy notes add an extra hint of complexity. The second nose reveals superb olfactory intensity on a more biscuity, brioche-like base. Balanced, rounded, and full-bodied, the palate shows aromas of ripe fruits like greengages and nectarines.
