Ruinart Brut is distinguished by pronounced notes of white fruits, with light shades of almonds and hazelnuts and a delightful fruity aroma. The perfect balance between the exceptional freshness of taste and the dense and long aftertaste is remarkable.

More about this wine
Ruinart is the oldest established champagne house, founded by Nicolas Ruinart in 1729 in the Champagne area of Reims. Sparkling wine was initially a business gift for fabric buyers, as Dom Ruinart's brother was a fabric trader, but six years later Maison Ruinart ceased these operations due to the staggering success of champagne wine. The taste of Ruinart is highly dependent on ageing - 3 to 4 years is standard, but for vintage champagnes it reaches 9-10 years. Ruinart has maintained a serious connection with the arts almost since its founding - in 1895 Andre Ruinart hired the Czech artist Alfons Mucha to illustrate a poster of the brand. To this day, the Maison is closely associated with contemporary art and actively supports many international events, including ARCO, Foire de Bale, Carre Rive Gauche, London Design and Miami Art Basel. Ruinart is owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA and distributes its champagne only through selected outlets.All wines of the same producer
The Champagne region is located to the northernmost of all the vineyards of France. The distinctive taste and purity of real champagne is certainly due to the calcareous soil and continental growing conditions. Unlike most other wines, it is characteristic of those from Champagne that the vintages of different years are blended to obtain a final product (non-vintage) or different wines from the same vintage are blended - in this case the wine is marked as vintage and its year is indicated on the label. This means, after all, that the quality of the champagne obtained depends very much on the balance between the quality of the grapes and the skills of the oenologists, which is why they are also promoted according to the name of the producer. Thus, in Champagne and around the world, the most famous names are Krug, Mumm, Bollinger, Veuve Clicquot, not to mention the well-known brands Dom Perignon, Moët & Chandon and Taittinger. The grape varieties in this region are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, which are present in different proportions in Champagne wines. The so-called Blanc de Blanc, made only from Chardonnay grapes, and Blanc de Noir, which is white champagne but made from red Pinot Noir grapes, are also often produced. A curious and little known fact is that in Champagne sparkling rose is made with a mixture of white and red wine, and not as is the standard for the production of rose wine.More wines of this region
Pinot Noir is the dominant red wine grape of Burgundy, a challenge for every single vine grower and wine producer. It can be found in Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (Pino Nero), Chile, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. The wines show a specific aroma of red berries and cherry depending on the vinification method employed - from fresh red cherries in lighter wines to stewed black cherries in weightier examples, many of them also showing hints of earthy flavours.More wines of the same variety
