Maison Ruinart presents a new vintage, Dom Ruinart 2010, a champagne made from 100% chardonnay grapes from exceptional terroir. In 2010, Ruinart Maison decided to replace crown caps with cork for Dom Ruinart, enabling Ruinart to age these precious bottles on lees for longer. It took more than a decade to reach its full potential. More than ten years of supervised rest in the depths of the Maison’s chalk quarry cellars in Reims.
Dom Ruinart’s chalk wrap offers a new interpretation of the second skin innovation. Velvety soft to the touch like chalk, it transforms this exceptional bottle into a sculptural object. The gentle reliefs and crevices crisscross, as if carved directly into chalky rock. It evokes the unbreakable link between Dom Ruinart and the chalk, from the growing of the vine on chalky soils, to the time when the vintage is aged in chalk cellars. It illustrates savoir-faire and respect for nature.
