If you’re looking for a stellar wine to bring to the table this thanksgiving, look no further.  Exclusively producing champagne since 1729, Ruinart’s Blanc de Blancs is the epitome of the oldest established champagne house’s taste. It is comprised of 100% Chardonnay grapes grown primarily with premiers crus from La Côte des Blancs and La Montagne de Reims terroirs, both prized for their aromatic finesse. The nose opens with ripe fresh fruits before transitioning to a hint of bitterness with white grapefruit and citron.
