2010 base vintage and 20-25% reserves from 2009 & 2008; 45% chardonnay from the Cotes des Blancs; 36% Pinot noir 19% pinot noir with a short maceration of 5 days to extract colour but not tannin structure; 9g/L dosage.
Ruinart’s Rose is intentionally fresh, fruity, aromatic and approachable, full of colour but light in structure. A large dose of chardonnay defines the house style of restraint and soft, chalky mineral mouthfeel, while a strong inclusion of red wine infuses a youthful, almost luminescent, medium crimson hue and.aromas and flavours of all shades of red: wild strawberries, pink pepper, pomegranate, guava, raspberries and red cherries. Subtle struck fruit alludes to reductive complexity. Gracious finesse is upheld without sacrificing flavour or fruit definition, with soft tannin structure and a well-gouged dosage maintaining a refreshing finish.
