The Ruinart House was officially created on 1st September 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart, a bold entrepreneur. In penning the founding document, he was realising the dream of his uncle, the Benedictine monk Dom Thierry Ruinart, to make Ruinart the first Champagne House.
This quest for perfection is particularly illustrated by the predominance of the Chardonnay grape, which is included in the composition of the whole Ruinart range and of the prestigious Dom Ruinart Champagnes, flowing through them and enhancing them like a golden thread.
Full-bodied, supple and extremely smooth, Ruinart Champagnes combine delicacy, and subtle freshness. With the finest grapes, skilful blending, extensive ageing in its 2000 year old cellars, and a uniquely shaped bottle, Ruinart defines its commitment to excellence and luxury.
