Champagne Ruinart Rosé NV
Why we love it
Ruinart was the first Champagne house selling sparkling rosé wine in 1764, preceding the modern rosé (blending Pinot Noir red wine into Champagne) invented by Veuve Clicquot in 1818.
I would call this a “fruit-forward” Champagne expression - fresh salmon-pink in colour, rich in small red fruit aromas, hints of white flowers with a touch of exotic fruits. Deliciously refreshing, but not “overly sour” or sticky. The bubbles are fine, gentle on the palate and beautiful to look at especially under the sun.
This is another classic Champagne, amazing as an aperitif, and beautiful together with food of delicate textures.
