Ruinart Champagne Brut Rose NV (France)
Producer Notes: On the palate the attack is distinctive and full, cradled by a gentle effervescence. The balance brings together delightful freshness and a voluptuous body. An elegant burst of peppermint and pink grapefruit rounds out this cheeky palette of aromas.
The nose offers intense notes of exotic fruits (pomegranate, lychee and guava) that develop alongside soft floral essences (rose) and notes of freshly picked red fruits (cherry, raspberry and wild strawberry). These aromas splendidly showcase the wine’s subtle, spicy notes (tonka bean and nutmeg).
Wine Spectator 94 Points: “A classy rosé that glides across the palate, with flavors of raspberry coulis, yellow peach, chamomile and blanched almond that expand on the creamy mousse and linger on the lightly spiced finish, powered by mouthwatering acidity. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2026."
Wine & Spirits 92 Points: “TFragrant with raspberry and hibiscus, this is a vibrant rose. Light pink in color, the wine has touches of sweetness that don't get in the way of its powerful personality. It shares the Middle Eastern spice notes of the Blanc de Blancs, here matched with delicate red fruit. Pour it with lacquered duck. WE91"
Wine Advocate 91 Points: “The latest rendition of Ruinart's NV Brut Rosé is a pretty, vibrant wine that offers up inviting aromas of tangerine, blood orange, plum and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and precise, with tangy acids and a pretty mousse, it's ca harming, comparatively vinous wine that is already showing well."
