DOM RUINART BRUT ROSE 2004

Dom Ruinart Rose encapsulates a balance one would believe to be impossible: a classic, yet velvety style of Champagne: Intense, delicate and aromatic, all at once. First and foremost, we'd like to gently remind you that it was Ruinart who crafted the first rose Champagne. Ruinart's accounting books hold references dating back to these early experiments. And yet, the creation of each new vintage of a great rose is an increasingly demanding exercise. A time old method is no longer the key: Dom Ruinart Rose is always a unique blend.

Composed of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir vinified as red wine, it has the character of a "blanc de blancs rose." Don't be misled into thinking that the high proportion of red wine means this wine has a deep colour. The cellar master vinifies the Pinot Noir, not looking for colour or tannins, but for aroma. Dom Ruinart Rose is undoubtedly one of the most delicately aromatic roses in existence.

With glass in hand, senses alert and an air of intense concentration, the cellar master Frederic Panaiotis speaks of the noble soils that are the source of these classic scents. Dom Ruinart Rose matures in the cellars for twelve years and displays the essential characteristics of a sublime rose Champagne as soon as released. Fresh golden raspberries, harmonize with the acidity of candied red currants, and just a hint of wild strawberry. This incredible cuvee wins the approval of all who experience it. This constantly classic Champagne is defined by its layers of minerals laced with smoke. A pink Champagne does not evolve at the same tempo as red wines of the same age. Flavors of the East draw you in with their complexity of exotic spices. Refined wild sea rose and a hint of dried rose petals hover on the surface of the Champagne and unfurl on the palate. This brilliant expression with its ever so subtle sweetness (5.5 grams/litre) is the result of a surprising balancing act: The creamy texture and classic style come together to represent a pedigreed wine. Dom Ruinart Rose 2004 follows in the footsteps of its predecessors, the unparalleled 1998 and 2002, followed then by all those of its ancient lineage.
