The House of Ruinart is the oldest winery in the Champagne region, and remains one of the most prestigious. Ruinart have been producing Champagne since 1729, and Feathered Nest are thrilled to be serving three varieties, Blanc de Blancs, Ruinart Rose and R De Ruinart. 

R De Ruinart: Delicate and fruity nose with aromas of fresh white pear and dry fruits such as hazelnuts and almonds, followed by white flower notes, Viennese pastry and buttered brioche.

Blanc de Blancs: Made from Chardonnay grapes. The nose is reminiscent of fresh fruits with notes of citrus and exotic fruits, followed by jasmine, white peaches and pink peppercorns.

Ruinart Rose: The Ruinart Rose 2002 is an exceptional Champagne with a vibrant and complex nose. An exotic fruity aroma with notes of rose and violet and a touch of musc. This Champagne owes it's distinct character to it's heritage, 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir made into red wine.
