Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 'Second Skin'
A champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes (100%) from different years (25% reserve wines from 2 or 3 previous harvests). These come mainly from the Premier Crus from Montagne de Reims and the Cote des Blancs.
On the eye: Pale, golden-yellow color with subtle green glints and wonderful luminosity, a persistent stream of fine and delicate bubbles
On the nose: A nose of fresh fruits dominated by citrus fruit and pineapple mixed with notes of white flowers and spices (ginger and cardamom
On the palate: A superb Blanc de Blancs with a clean, pure and well-defined palate. The attack is supple and full-bodied giving way to a superb, very refreshing finish of white peach and citron notes
A very sociable wine, excellent for aperitifs on a sunny terrace on a summer afternoon. It is a wonderful accompaniment for langoustine or tartar of sea beam served with olive oil and lemon. Grilled sole or a white fish sashimi would also marry the wine perfectly.
