Seeped in history, the Champagne house of Ruinart dates back to the 17th century. Founded in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart in the city of Reims, Ruinart became the world's first ever Champagne-producing company. This gave rise to an enterprise that continues to flourish and prosper nearly three hundred years later.
The house is synonymous with class and its production of only 1.7 million bottles per year is small compared to other grande marques. It is now part of the LVMH group that also owns Moët & Chandon.
The house style emphasises the pre-eminence of Chardonnay over Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
