'RUINART BRUT ROSÉ IS A SEDUCTIVE
EXPRESSION OF THE RUINART STYLE'
this rosé blend, with instructions that this very special
pink Champagne should only be oered to the
greatest connoisseurs of wine.
Today, over 250 years later, his legacy lives on
as ne wine lovers around the world enjoy the
distinctive style of Ruinart Brut Rosé. The signature
blend is made by cellar master Frédéric Panaïotis
using a technique known as assemblage. In line
with Ruinart's signature house style, it has a high
proportion of Chardonnay (45%) from premiers crus
vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, which gives the
Champagne its sensual elegance and fresh aroma.
Pinot Noir wine made from grapes grown in the
Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne areas
adds enticing cherry and red berry notes to the nose,
and exotic �avours of guava and lychee to the palate
- as well as creating that unique pomegranate pink
colour with pale orange hints.
A taste of Ruinart
"Ruinart Brut Rosé is a very seductive expression of
the Ruinart style," says cellar master Panaïotis. "It's a
very intense, straightforward, up-front style of rosé
Champagne. It makes a very easy style of Champagne
to drink, very palatable, but also very subtle at the
same time, with a beautiful freshness. It's a lovely
wine to drink on any occasion."
A rosé Champagne with such a wealth of history
and expertise behind it is certainly ideal for any event,
whether a celebration or a simple treat, but sitting
down to an afternoon tea in one of London's most
