Ruinart Rose

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Here is yet another pearler of a champagne from Ruinart that won’t blow the budget if you are after the real thing. Red berry fruits, rose florals, baked bread and roasted nuts decorate the nose, meanwhile the palate is red fruited and brisk, with a touch of spice, fine bubbles, and a refreshing line of acidity leading to a dry, elongated finish. Lovely with some cured salmon and cream cheese.

Winemaker's Notes

The colour is a delicate pomegranate pink with very slightly orange reflections. The sparkling, light effervescence has a persistent foam.

The nose is subtle and fresh, first offering an original palette of tropical fruits (guava and lychee) and small berries (raspberries, cherries and wild strawberries) in the first instance. These are followed by rose and pomegranate notes which complete the complex, intense aromatic profile, dominated by somewhat undeveloped primary aromas.

On the palate the attack is distinct and full, cradled by a gentle effervescence. The aromas of freshly picked berries are fully expressed. The balance brings together a delightful freshness and voluptuous body, expressed by an elegant bracing touch of mint and pink grapefruit.

Ruinart Rosé is a truly festive champagne, which is a delight to drink throughout a meal from aperitif to dessert.

It will be enhanced by thin slices of fine Italian prosciutto (San Daniele, Parma, etc.). A starter of mi-cuit salmon, or salmon prepared as a Japanese “tataki”, will reveal its many facets. For a main course, it will be an admirable accompaniment for a leg of milk-fed lamb or a low temperature cooked veal fillet.

At the end of the meal it will find its full expression with a berry soup enhanced with an excellent Modena balsamic vinegar.

Nick Stock says
The trademark Ruinart big house flavour with countering freshness is all here. This has a bright lemon and white-raspberry nose as well as some fine, creamy chardonnay - a signature of the Ruinart expression. The palate is fine, juicy and assertive, with long, fine red fruit and creamy brioche flavour.

The new disgorgement has finally reached our shores and it's a refreshing shower of subtle red cherries, strawberries and pink pepper. Fresh and refined, with a soft bead and long finish.
