Ruinart is the oldest established Champagne house, exclusively producing champagne since 1729. The Ruinart House was created on 1st September 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart, a bold entrepreneur. In penning the founding document, he was realising the dream of his uncle, the Benedictine monk Dom Thierry Ruinart, to make Ruinart the first Champagne House.
The Ruinart style is floral and elegant with a lovely complex character - fruit is developed and long with notes of spice, brioche and roasted sweet nut.
Great with fish dishes with a touch of class and substance. Our favourite is poached trout!
