Dom Ruinart Rose 2002 Gift Boxed
The 2002 vintage was characterised by mild, dry weather. Both Spring and Summer experienced wonderful sunny periods. Even though there was rain at the end of August, the dry wind and fine weather which arrived in September made it possible for the grapes to ripen in excellent conditions. Just the right amount of sunshine throughout September meant that the harvest was perfectly ripe while maintaining a very good level of acidity. The blend was made using 80% Grand Cru Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir made into red wine from the Sillery and Verzenay crus.
Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002 presents a vibrant colour, a deep coral with delicate coppery tones. The primary aroma of this vintage champagne is surprisingly intense and complex; notes of exotic fruits (guava) and citrus (blood orange, citron) intermingle with floral aromas such as violet and rose with a touch of musk. Allowing it to breathe reveals notes of all spice followed by orange blossom, brioche, orgeat, with a bbase of perfectly ripe red fruits. The richness of the 2002 vintage boasts exceptional breadth and volume on the palate. It offers a fine fruity, floral and spicy aromatic range. The low dosage leaves a final flourish of great purity, expressing the nobility of the grand crus making up this cuvée. Pairs well with savoury dishes such as soy-glazed squab, wild duck or slow cooked veal cutlet.
