The history of Ruinart rosé, the very first rosé champagne to make its appearance, dates back to the 18th century. While Ruinart rosé champagne first appeared over 250 years ago, its excellent quality remains the essential feature of the production of this delicate wine to this day.
45% of the Chardonnay is from the Cote des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards. 55% of the Pinot Noir is from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallee de la Marne vineyards, 18 to 19% of which has been made into still red wine. 20 to 25% coming from reserve wines from the 2 previous years.

Wine SpectatorA pure note of wild strawberry rides the fine and creamy mousse of this mouthwatering rosé. Expressive, with flavors of ripe berry, candied ginger, pink grapefruit zest, marzipan and smoky mineral. Elegant overall. Drink now through 2020. 3,210 cases imported.
International Wine CellarBright orange-pink. Spice-accented aromas and flavors of red berries, cherry and candied rose, with a smoky nuance building with air. Juicy and precise, with more energy and cut than last year's release. Finishes long, with very good energy, leaving spice and floral notes behind.

Sweet berries, flowers and spices are layered into the refined, well-articulated finish. This is Lot LAGJUA4. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
