Dom Ruinart Vintage 2002
Dom Ruinart Vintage 2002
This champagne is a Blanc de blancs (bdb) which means it it constructed from pure Chardonnay exclusively from parcels with Grand Cru status. 72% from the Côte des Blancs (primarily Chouilly, Le Mesnil and Avize) and 28% from the northern slopes of the Montagne de Reims (primarily Sillery and Puisieulx). This involves partial barrel fermentation and, after blending the final cuvée in the first months of 2003, maturation for at least 96 months before disgorgement and dosage which in recent years has been reduced to around 6g. to meet the freshness and minerality and not least the current demand for an expression that is a little bit drier. As this is a vintage champagne it can still be stored in years to come, but it is starting to reach an age of full maturity, can be enjoyed today as well.
Comments from a tasting:
"A superb, mature wine that is ripe, toasty and full of yellow- and white-fruit flavors. A fine balance brings up spice, an opulent texture, a taut edge of steel and a feeling that this fine wine is ready to drink. It can age, and it will be better over the next few years as its secondary aromas stay in balance with the fruitiness."
