Product Description

The color of Dom Ruinart 2004 is luminous yellow with pale green reflections.

At first the nose reveals the sweet, gentle notes of chestnut, coconut and fresh bread. This biscuity side to the wine very quickly gives way to the aromas of flowers (iris, lily-of-the valley and the flowers of Seville orange trees) and citrus fruits (bergamot and citron). Just beneath the surface several mineral (wet rock and flint) and iodised saline notes make an appearance.

Region: Reims

Region Description:

Reims (Rheims) is a city of the Champagne-Ardenne region in northern France located 89 miles east-northeast of Paris. It was founded by the Gauls and became a major city during the period of the Roman Empire. Reims has played a very important role in French history, as it was the place where kings like Charles VII were crowned. Besides the rich history Reims is world-famous for its sparkling wine. Many of the largest Champagne producing houses, known as les grandes marques, have their headquarters in Reims where Champagne is aged in the maze of caves and tunnels under the city.
