Ruinart Brut Champagne Dom Ruinart 750ML

Ruinart Brut Champagne Dom Ruinart 750ML

Vintage: 1998
Winery: Ruinart
Description: Rich, toasty, mature, this important Champagne is all those things. It's certainly mature for a 1998 vintage, which means it would be delicious to drink now. But the ripeness, allied to the serious acidity and wood structure, do suggest that it's likely to age more. R.v. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 95 Points. The 1998 Dom Ruinart Brut Vintage is simply gorgeous. This taut, focused Champagne is currently quite shut down and appears to be holding back much of its potential. Still, the wine possesses plenty of density in its ripe Chardonnay fruit, smoke and minerals, with a long, subtle finish. All this wine needs is time in bottle. If past vintages are any indication, the 1998 should age beautifully. Readers who enjoy fresh wines will find plenty to admire in this wine now, but those who enjoy Champagnes with a little age on them will want to wait a few years before enjoying this fine effort. This is Lot: Aee2ad, disgorged July, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018. - Robert Parker 92 Points. Silky in texture, this Champagne also has a racy structure driving its grapefruit, ginger, bread dough and apple flavors. It's balanced in the tart side, with a lemony finish. Drink now through 2020. –bs - Wine Spectator Magazine 89 Points.
