Ruinart R Vintage 2015 Bottle (0.75L) | Naked Bottle
Ruinart R Vintage 2015 is an elegant, dynamic and structured champagne.
2015: “A year of extremes for wines with a seductive and dynamic balance”, according to Frédéric Panïotis, Ruinart’s Cellar Master.
The 2015 vintage: This vintage was marked by extreme dryness during the vine cycle (20% less rain than the ten-year average) and a lot of sunshine (23% more). The beginning of August and therefore the ripening period was particularly hot and dry. The second part of August was cool and very wet. What a contrast! Fortunately, the return of dry weather during the first week of September allowed the grapes to ripen well: the harvest began on 8 September in this cool, dry climate.
