About Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Brut ChampagneEstablished in 1729, Maison Ruinart was the world's first Champagne-producing company, making it the oldest Champagne house. It was founded by Nicolas Ruinart in Reims, Champagne, soon after Louis XV authorized wine to be transported in bottles instead of barrels. Initially, the Champagne production was meant as a side business, but as the operation proved to be lucrative, the cloth selling business fell to the sidelines. Today, the house is owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. The chalk quarries that provided optimal conditions for wine aging are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These cellars can be 40 meters below the ground, the chalk helping keep the temperature at a constant 11 degrees Celsius.
Chardonnay is at the heart of Ruinart, the grapes mostly coming from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terroirs. Ruinart's flagship Blanc de Blancs, first released with the 1959 vintage, is no exception ― it's a blend of 100% Chardonnay from different years, 20 to 25% being reserve wines from the previous 2 years. The vineyards from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims provide refined aromas, while the Sézannais wines add a mature touch. Wines from the north of the Vesle valley bring a light freshness. The delicious aperitif Champagne pairs well with seafood and shellfish.

Champagne has been associated with royalties since the 17th century, still maintaining its glorious reputation.
The French take Champagne seriously, so coming from the Champagne region of France isn't the only requirement that keeps this drink from being "just sparkling wine." The rules of the appellation require specific vineyard practices, particular types of grapes, specific pressing methods, and secondary fermentation of wine.
