Two non-vintage champagnes from Ruinart, the oldest Champagne House in existence, are now available in the US: Ruinart Blanc de Blancs, made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, and Ruinart Rosé, made from a blend of 45% Chardonnay grapes and 55% Pinot Noir grapes. The signature of the Ruinart style is the Chardonnay grape. Grown in the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards, the Chardonnay grape is the most fragile of grapes and a challenge to blend. The winemakers of Ruinart have successfully taken on this challenge and have perfected the art of blending the finest Premier Cru Chardonnay grapes into wines of elegance, finesse and purity – thereby earning Ruinart its reputation as the aesthete of champagne. The unique shape of the Ruinart Blanc de Blanc and Ruinart Rosé bottles dates back to 1729. Ruinart Champagne is imported exclusively by Möet Hennessy USA, New York, NY.
