Dom Ruinart 2007 has a luminous and intense gold colour with iridescent green glints. The attack is a hit of chalk, then flint and oyster shell notes mingle with the smoky aromas of blond tobacco. The nose continues into springtime notes, underscored with light aromas of sap, linden, acacia, extremely fresh yellow and green citrus fruit (lime, yuzu) and green fruit (plum).
The subtle notes of fig leaf, liquorice and fine Chinese tea enhance the complexity of its aromatic bouquet. The palate, which begins smoothly, quickly reveals a thrilling, stony liveliness and a deep intensity structured by notes of green citrus and grapefruit. The sap-infused and chalky finish is framed with an elegant bitter flavour. Dom Ruinart 2007 is a dynamic, sculpted wine that expresses the full purity of fine Chardonnay.

“The House of Ruinart was founded in 1729, well into the XVIIIth Century, at a time when a new 'art of living' was emerging in France. Sustaining, developing and exporting this art is a mission that comes naturally to the oldest champagne House.” - Ruinart
