Hello wine lovers, this is the Blanc de Blancs from Ruinart. Well-renowned champagne house, actually the first champagne house to produce sparkling wine in 1729. This is a quite well known cuvee I would say, the Blanc de Blancs. So obviously only Chardonnay. This is a style I normally describe as a quite full-bodied and generous style of Chardonnay. Already the nose suggest a lot of ripe stone fruit with citrusy notes, a hint of nuttiness and creaminess as well. It is really caressing on the palate with a broad structure. Very generous fruit. There is a good vinosity there as well. Some complexity coming from the ageing on the lees. Well-balanced acidity. Lush and creamy finish. This is very much a foody style I would say, because we all know that champagne works well for aperitif. This is something I would happily pair with white fish, such as sea bass in a beurre de blanc sauce, should be pretty good.
