Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2007 in Gift Box

$174.99

This beautiful vintage champagne is an ode to the blanc de blancs style and the pure elegance of chardonnay. Dom Ruinart 2007 initially suggests minerality and smokiness, then surprises with a turn towards citrus freshness. The chardonnay grapes, from grand cru vineyards in Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims, impart a unique finesse, while time in Ruinart’s cellars bestows impressive aromatic intensity.

TASTING NOTES

On the eye: A luminous and intense gold, with glints of green.

On the nose: Aromas of chalk, then flint, mingle with a light tobacco smokiness that evolves to a more springlike state, with notes of sap, acacia, yellow and green citrus, and just a hint of fig and licorice.

On the palate: Deeply intense on the palate, this champagne begins smoothly before quickly revealing a thrilling liveliness, supported by notes of fresh green citrus and grapefruit.

PAIRING

Simple fish and seafood work best.

Appetizer: Scallop carpaccio dressed with first-press olive oil – with its delicate, grassy flavors – is the perfect dish to begin a meal.

Entrée: This champagne’s texture pairs well with tea-steamed cod, baked in paper and served in a champagne consommé.
