It is no surprise that Maison Ruinart was born in the age of enlightenment, a time of ideas, connection, conversation, refinement and culture. For nearly three centuries since 1729, Maison Ruinart has been committed to providing an authentic, essential and responsible vision of art de vivre. Elegance and finesse. Freshness and lightness. 

Its 18th century bottle shape is unmistakable, but what makes Ruinart Rosé so special? Effervescence and intensity, freshness and delicacy, fruity notes that exude exoticism and singularity. Ruinart Rosé sings with the harmonious blend of chardonnay and pinot noir. The intensity of pinot noir and the aromatic freshness of chardonnay illustrate the unique Ruinart taste. On the nose, then on the palate, it expresses a complex aromatic profile, weaving together exotic fruits, lychee and guava, and notes of damascena rose and citrus. Reconciling intensity with a subtle character, the wine is balanced and supple, with outstanding length. 

When it comes to food pairing, Ruinart Rosé can be served from aperitif to dessert, A salmon ceviche with avocado mousse will enhance its freshness and silky texture, while slow-cooked veal fillet will bring out its complex body. A dessert of carrot cake will bring out Ruinart Rosé’s characterised spicy notes, which can be paired with seasonal products such as carrots or oranges across any meal. Commenting on versatility in accompanying food, Frédéric Panaïotis, Ruinart’s Cellar Master, says: “Ruinart Rosé is versatile, pairing with gourmet cuisine and remaining enjoyable throughout the meal: from the starter to the dessert”. 

In 2020, Ruinart broke the tradition of individual gift boxes, and pushed its global environmental approach further with the second skin case. This eco-designed casing perfectly marries the emblematic silhouette of the Maison’s signature bottle with Ruinart’s taste integrity, which is preserved until tasting. By revolutionising the packaging, Maison Ruinart put its leadership role in service of sustainable development. Where a big gift box made sense in the past, an entirely recyclable cloak composed of 100% natural wood fibres is a more suitable fit today.
