|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
This Champagne has aromas of baked apple, freshly baked bread, shortbread cookies, and some mineral notes. In terms of flavours, there is lemon, buttery croissant, a wonderful crispness and a slight bitter finish. So delicious!

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Ruinart is well known for being one of the oldest extant Champagne houses stil in operation. This is there non-vintage, but by no means is it simple. It's Chardonnay and Pinot Noir aged for three years on its lees.
Great persistence to the bubbles. Deep yellow colour already. That probably indicates it has quite a bit of older reserve wines in it already.
Aromas of funky, smokey lees jump out at you. Afterwards, you get some nice pineapple, lanolin, dried apple, nectarine, and blackberry.
The flavours combine fresh flavours of younger wine; tart green apple, apricot, pineapple, and nectarine. There are also some characteristics of older wine. Honey, pistachio, ginger, and subtle rancio.
This is a suave and tasty wine for holiday fare: chestnuts, turkey, cranberries, gingerbread, glazed ham. Cool wine from a great and historic house.
|Ruinart R De Ruinart Brut comes from a champagne house dating as far back as 1729. Look for notes of dried florals, peach and brioche. An easy non-vintage champagne to enjoy. - Community Wine Reviews|
