The Estate and the Vineyard
RUINART is the oldest champagne house. The monk Dom Thierry Ruinart, contemporary of Louis XIV, tames the mundane life and the echoes of a new sparkling wine; not yet bearing the name of champagne. His nephew, Nicolas Ruinart wrote the founding act of the Maison Ruinart in 1729. It is the first in the world.
Three centuries later, the House continues to grow and become more refined, thanks to the special talents of each of the generations of the RUINART lineage.
Among the seven grape varieties authorized by the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée Champagne, Chardonnay was chosen by the Maison Ruinart. Complex, it brings elegance and aromatic freshness.
