Always vintage, this exceptional cuvée was born in 1959. Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2010 second skin Case celebrates Chardonnay, the emblematic grape variety of the Ruinart House. This singular wine is the expression of the best years in which Chardonnay has been able to express all its complexity and elegance while preserving a great freshness.
Dom Ruinart 2010 marks a major step in the ageing process, with the return of a practice that was once used: tirage-liège. At the end of the 1990s, guided by an intuition, the cellar master decided to age part of the production of Dom Ruinart 1998 bottles under cork. Instead of the metal capsules commonly used, he opted for cork stoppers. Then, as usual, he let time do its work. In 2008, upon tasting, the difference is significant: the corked bottles give more complex wines with an extra dimension of complexity. Of course, this material is porous, but over a long period of time, it remains extremely stable. More so than the metal capsule, which allows oxygen to pass through in a constant and regular manner every year. The following Dom Ruinart cuvées benefited from this knowledge.
A technological and sustainable innovation, the Second Skin Case now dresses the bottles of the Ruinart Champagne House. Eco-designed and entirely recyclable, this envelope, a tribute to the Crayères, advocates a return to nature. It aims to reduce and recycle without altering either the Ruinart experience or the taste.
Presented in this beautiful case, this exceptional cuvée will be ideal for all your special occasions and gifts.
The colour of this wine is golden yellow with light green reflections. The effervescence is fine and persistent.
The first nose presents a powdery, floral (Iris) and mineral (wet rock) note evoking the chypre universe of perfumery. Toasted and spicy notes then dominate: the mace of nutmeg for its finesse and intensity, roasted hazelnut and almond, a hint of coffee, reminiscent of enveloping and reassuring perfumes. Zesty notes of ripe citrus fruits energise the aromas of this vintage.
Both rich and tense, Dom Ruinart 2010 is seductive, expressive and concentrated. It asserts itself with great aromatic intensity. Aromas of fig leaves mingle with notes of black tea and fresh spices (sil timur berries, mahaleb). On the palate, the material develops and persists, both firm and directed. The wine extends with a fresh finish enhanced by an elegant bitterness. The Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2010 is a great Chardonnay wine.

Characteristics : The 2010 vintage : It was a cool spring that marked the beginning of the 2010 vintage with temperatures well below the ten-year average. This persisted until flowering, causing a delay of five days in the vine's cycle. The summer of 2010 started off well, neither too hot nor too cold, with a summer rainfall deficit of 25% compared to the average of the previous ten years. Everything changes in mid-August as the grapes begin to ripen: torrential rains (the equivalent of two months of rain) fall on the Champagne region. The extreme conditions of constant heat and humidity favoured the development of the Botrytis cinerea fungus, which particularly attacked the Pinot Noir and Meunier grapes. Fortunately, Chardonnay, which was less sensitive at this stage, was spared. September was a milder month. The harvest began on 15 September and the optimal quality of the Chardonnays was maintained until maturity and the end of the harvest. During the tasting of the clear wines, the 2010 Chardonnays surprise us with their richness: this balance in the altos allows our oenological team to express all its know-how when blending these great Chardonnays.
