A pioneer in the champagne trade, the Ruinart House has stood out due to its unique know-how and history.

A skilful blend of wines made from the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, "R" de Ruinart is a golden, lively, fruity champagne with the subtle aroma of white fruits which make it an excellent aperitif or the ideal accompaniment for a meal at which champagne is the only wine served. The full extent of its aromas will be brought out by a subtle, sophisticated dish such as lightly sautéed scallops.
Tasting note: Pale yellow-gold hue. Lightly smoky and yeasty aromas with apple fruit accents follow through on a ripe and fruity palate with a crisp and long yeasty finish. 12.5% Alc./Vol.
