Champagne Ruinart

CHARDONNAY, THE ESSENCE OF RUINART TASTE
Since its foundation in 1729, Ruinart Champagne, the oldest Champagne House has been committed to the excellence of its wines. Ruinart’s taste bears the signature of Chardonnay, the common thread in all its blends. Present in high proportions in all the House’s cuvées, this grape variety offers luminous and intense wines with a unique lightness. This delicate grape variety requires time, care and know-how to express itself and reveal the secret of its complexity. Ruinart sublimates it by developing a great aromatic freshness that is found in its emblematic cuvée, R de Ruinart.

Champagne Ruinart - Champmarket
Ruinart is the oldest champagne house, founded in 1729. There was no champagne house before it. Its origins lie in the intuition of a monk who was ahead of his time: Dom Thierry Ruinart (1657-1709), a Benedictine monk who was a visionary, hard-working and modest contemporary of Louis XIV. He detected the craze of the socialites for this new "wine of bubbles", which was not yet called Champagne, but which was becoming increasingly known by aristocratic wine lovers.


THE CHALK PITS, A UNIQUE UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE


A pioneer, it was at the end of the 18th century that the Ruinart family had the intuition that the chalk pits, former white chalk quarries, were capable of offering optimal conditions for the ageing of its wines.Dug into the limestone subsoil of the capital of Champagne, at a depth of nearly 40 metres, the twenty Ruinart chalk pits extend over two levels and 8 kilometres beneath the city of Reims. These chalk cathedrals, which are still in use, are the only ones in the city to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and classified as a 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 head of the House.
