Ruinart Blanc de Blancs

Ruinart uses the méthode champenoise for their champagne production. The non-vintage Blanc de Blancs is composed of 100% Chardonnay primarily from Premier Crus of the Cote des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims vineyards. Ruinart uses the pneumatic press instead of the traditional champagne press to protect from oxidation. They also incorporate inert nitrogen gas at every stage of production. Vinification is only in stainless steel. Ruinart Blanc de Blancs undergoes full malolactic fermentation. The House relies exclusively on gyropalates rather than hand riddling. Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is bottled in clear glass to highlight the color. Bottles should be stored away from any light sources. Aged 2 or more years on the lees. The dosage typically ranges from 8 to 9 grams per liter.
