NV Ruinart Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut – France, Champagne (11/24/2015)
We visited Pierre Hong Kong as Chef Pierre Gagnaire was in town presenting his white truffle menu…and to celebrate, yet again, our birthday month!
We sat down and were immediately presented with two fairly large, flutes before we even requested the wine list. Complimentary bubbles always nice!
Amazing when sipping this glass second after the 2004 Fleury Bolero…our own blend, if you like ;-)!
Ruinart EVERYTHING is always a good start to any event. The Blanc de Blancs Brut is not exception. Golden yellow with hints of green. Citrus and tropical fruits. Slightly bubbly bubble. Long, refreshing and vivid finish. (90 points)
