What to expect


Dom Ruinart is the prestige cuvee released only in special years of the poised maison and namesake, Ruinart which is the oldest champagne house founded in 1729. This wine is a blanc de blancs (100% chardonnay) with all grapes being sourced from grand cru villages further enhancing its pedigree.

If you have a significant birthday, milestone or special moment coming up, then this vintage wine will help take your moment to the next level! Nothing short of ethereal, this cuvee is what we love about champagne. 

Serve this wine in a larger glass at approximately 12 degrees, not too cool or the wine will not show you its true calibre. The vintage 04 will continue to show more and more aromas as it spends time out of the bottle. This is a prestige cuvee that has spent at least a decade in the winemaker's cellar and will show exotic notes such as coconut and the significant time on lees is played out with chestnut, nougat and freshly baked bread. 

Ruinart is also classically Burgundian in its style and Dom Ruinart year on year shows flinty notes, wet stone and sublime levels of minerality.

About the house

Food suggestion

"Fréderic Panaïotis grew up between his grandparents’ chardonnay vines in Champagne, and the variety remains close to his heart, making him very much at home as chef de cave at Ruinart since 2007. The longest-established champagne house of all has an affinity with chardonnay’s freshness, finesse and elegance, and all of its finest cuvées lead with this variety, even its prestige rosé. Without the might of Moët & Chandon, the brand impact of Veuve Clicquot or the cachet of Krug, Ruinart lurks as the low-profile member of the Louis Vuitton–Moët Hennessy family. On Reims’ famed Rue de Crayères, its premises hide behind the grand street presence of Pommery and Veuve Clicquot. This is just as Panaïotis would have it. ‘In France we have a saying, if you live underground, you live happy!’ he says. But on its performance, Ruinart has no need to lie low. Its cuvées are pure and pitch-perfect, singing with the crystalline precision of chardonnay."  Tyson Stelzer - The Champagne Guide 2018-2019

This mind-blowingly impressive champagne should be served with only the finest cuisine - spare no expensive to take this ethereal champagne to another level by serving it with lobster tails dressed in a champagne and butter sauce with a side of crudite, crunchy baby-vegetables.
