Ruinart, Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2009

RRP £185

Despite having three years’ ageing post-disgorgement (March 2018), upon release this is still elegantly reserved and smoky-mineral in aromatics. The year was dry and sunny, but the wine retained its crunchy fruit profile: lemon, yellow apple and ripe apricots. It takes some time to open in the glass. On the palate, it comes with ample, attractive fruitiness and fleshy mouthfeel. But by no means is it soft in the way many wines of the vintage are – instead, it is surprisingly crisp. The slow ageing curve promises great longevity.
