THE ORIGINS OF RUINART
Founded in 1729, Ruinart is the oldest Champagne House and one of the most emblematic. Before her, there were none. At its source, the intuition of a monk who was ahead of his time: <strong>Dom Ruinart</strong> (1657-1709), a visionary, hard-working, modest Benedictine monk and contemporary of Louis XIV. He detected the worldly craze for this new “bubbly wine”, not yet known as Champagne, but increasingly popular with aristocratic connoisseurs.
On May 25, 1728, Louis XV signed a royal decree authorizing the transport of sparkling wine in baskets of 50 to 100 bottles, heralding the start of a small revolution that would lead to the commercial expansion of brut Champagne wines.
On the strength of his uncle’s intuition, Nicolas Ruinart drew up the deed founding the House of Ruinart on September 1, 1729. 20 years after the death of Dom Thierry Ruinart, the world’s first Champagne house was born…
The company soon enjoyed considerable growth and established itself as a pioneer in its field. Ruinart was the first Champagne House to create a Rosé Champagne.
The House of Ruinart was born at the dawn of a century that brought a wind of renewal to France, marking the apogee of a strong intellectual current: after the pomp of the century of Louis XIV, the Age of Enlightenment rethought codes to give birth to a true French art of living, in which taste plays a decisive role. The finesse, elegance and rarity of Champagne wines are perfectly in tune with this era. Enobled in 1817, the Ruinart family coat of arms has adorned the labels of Ruinart’s precious bottles of Champagne ever since.
For more than 250 years now, Ruinart has embodied this symbol of the French art of living, with consistent quality and a distinctive signature: the Ruinart “taste”.
FRÉDÉRIC PANAÏOTIS, THE ORCHESTRA CONDUCTOR
Since 2007, Cellar Master Frédéric Panaïotis, voted Winemaker of the Year in the Guide Hachette 2020, has been responsible for preserving the Ruinart identity by displaying this consistency of style and excellence, vintage after vintage.
According to him, the Ruinart style is based on the pure expression of aromas, with notes of fresh fruit and spices. It’s with this in mind that Frédéric Panaiotis works on the wines of Champagne Ruinart, favoring reduction-based vinification and avoiding all oxidation. Wood is used sparingly to preserve the freshness and brilliance of Ruinart cuvées. The House also favors rather young reserve wines.
With low dosage and no trace of the aromas left by malolactic fermentation, Ruinart Champagne has the incredible ability to seduce all palates with its “dashing youth”, while also presenting interesting ageing potential, depending on the vintage.
Maison Ruinart’s commitment to preserving nature and know-how is strong and long-standing. Since 1729, the roots of its exceptional wines have been in the terroir and ancestral know-how. Faced with today’s environmental deﬁs, the company has made strong commitments, and is committed to carrying out numerous transformations in order to achieve a positive impact on the world.
BLANC DE BLANCS, THE EMBLEM OF RUINART TASTE
Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is a pure, clean and precise champagne. Both visionary in its elaboration and singular in its tasting, this blend of twenty-five to thirty carefully selected Chardonnay vintages expresses aromatic freshness and a sublime nose in elegant simplicity. This Champagne wine is available in small bottles, bottles, magnums and jeroboams.

Feel free to share your opinion on the champagne brut or cuvée blanc de blanc in a second skin box directly in the Champmarket store.
CHARDONNAY, THE GOLDEN THREAD OF RUINART STYLE
The Ruinart taste bears the signature of Chardonnay, the common thread running through all its blends. Mainly from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims regions, this noble grape variety is at the heart of all Ruinart champagnes. Its wines are luminous and intense, with a unique lightness. Delicate, it requires time, care and expertise to express itself and reveal the secret of its complexity.
THE CRAYÈRES, A UNIQUE UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE
A pioneer, it was at the end of the 18th century that the family intuited that the chalk pits, former white chalk quarries, were capable of offering optimal conditions for aging its wines.
Dug into the limestone subsoil of the capital of Champagne, at a depth of almost 40 meters, the twenty or so pits extend over two levels and 8 kilometers beneath the city of Reims. The Ruinart chalk pits, cathedrals of chalk still in use, are the only ones in the city to be both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a listed historic site.
For more than two centuries, the Ruinart family, ennobled and renamed Ruinart de Brimont in 1817, has run the House with the same constancy. Each generation reveals a talented chef de Maison.
RUINART PROMOTES BIODIVERSITY
Forest regeneration and biodiversity enhancement are complementary and particularly effective in combating climate change and its consequences. Maison Ruinart is fully committed to both of these directions today, having embarked on a number of ambitious projects. In collaboration with Reforest’Action, an expert in forest management and creation, it plans to plant almost 25,000 trees and shrubs between 2021 and 2022 in its Taissy vineyard in Champagne.
The company is also extending its commitments on a wider scale by joining forces with Conservation International, with the aim of helping to protect more than 500,000 trees around the world.
A PIONEER IN SUSTAINABLE VITICULTURE
Since the early 2000s, the climate has been changing and the effects on the vines have been felt.
The company has been a pioneer in the field of sustainable viticulture: over the last 10 years, it has reduced its use of inputs (fertilizers and phytosanitary products) by 40%, and no longer uses any herbicides.
Moët Hennessy-Ruinart’s own vineyards have been doubly certified Viticulture Durable en Champagne & Haute Valeur Environnementale (HVE) since 2014, with over 120 spaces dedicated to biodiversity, and over 95% of the vineyard grassed.
At the same time, it provides its delivery partners with administrative and financial support to achieve the dual certification of Sustainable Viticulture and High Environmental Value.
For classic, regular occasions (end-of-year celebrations, birthdays…) the R, Rosé cuvées are sure to make a lasting impression, and will be much appreciated by the recipient. If you’re giving a gift for a more important occasion (wedding, birth…) the Vintage and Blanc de Blancs cuvées will add a special touch to the occasion. Last but not least, Dom Ruinart and Dom Ruinart Rosé prestige cuvées are reserved for very special occasions, to enhance the moment and remain forever engraved in the mind of the recipient.
All Ruinart cuvées are dominated by Chardonnay, the grape variety emblematic of the Ruinart taste. Chardonnay reveals great minerality, counterbalanced by a certain roundness, and unfolds refined, elaborate flavors, revealing floral, fruity and lightly toasted notes.
To take full advantage of its aromas and freshness, the Brut, Rosé and Blanc de Blancs cuvées should be drunk within 2 to 3 years of purchase. Ruinart Vintage will gain in complexity and intensity with a few more years of cellaring. The prestige cuvées (Dom Ruinart and Dom Ruinart Rosé) can be enjoyed up to 10 years after purchase, and even longer if storage conditions are ideal.
Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is a jewel of exclusivity, its fine, subtle texture and vibrant, fresh character making it a unique, incomparable champagne worthy of the most demanding connoisseurs. This cuvée is made only from the most prestigious white grapes from exceptional terroirs in the Côte des Blancs, a limestone soil benefiting from an oceanic climate with a continental influence that lends finesse and brilliance to the Chardonnay.
The best Ruinart Champagne is subjective and depends on your personal tastes. The emblematic Ruinart R cuvée is a must-have, a refined wine made predominantly from Chardonnay grapes. The Ruinart Blanc de Blanc offers unparalleled purity and elegance, the rosé a captivating vivacity and complex fruity notes, and finally the Vintage offers structure and complexity.
A bottle of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs requires a substantial budget. The high price is fully justified by the exceptional quality of this cuvée, made exclusively from Chardonnay from a number of carefully selected crus. Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is a delicate wine that combines freshness and roundness, offering a fruity taste experience with citrus notes.
Maison Ruinart produces several different cuvées: brut, rosé, blanc de blancs, vintage and prestige. Ruinart’s emblematic brut cuvée is called “R de Ruinart”, a champagne that combines the freshness of chardonnay, the structure of pinot noir and the fruitiness of meunier….The primary expression of Ruinart taste.
