One has to start the evening with their baby 🍼(375ml)! Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone. Hope you are enjoying some nice 🍷🍾🥂 over the extended weekend.

On the nose, lean, ripe; strawberries, black cherries, watermelon near the rhine, cherries and notes of white & orange citrus. Beautiful full chalkiness, sea spray-shells, delicate volcanic minerals, bread dough and red & pink roses.

The palate is rich and full. The fruits are deeper, brighter and far more pronounced on the palate than the nose. Ripe; strawberries, black cherries, watermelon near the rhine, cherries and notes of white & orange citrus. Beautiful full chalkiness, sea spray-shells, delicate volcanic minerals that penetrate the palate intensely with a bit of a stinging sensation, bread dough and red & pink roses. The acidity is round and beautiful. The long, big, rich, elegant, well balanced and lasts minutes.

Photos of; the Champagne House of Ruinart, painting of Dom Ruinart, their vast caves and one of their Grand Cru vineyards.

Sofia in a stunning reversal of last weekend tells me she likes the Billecart Salmon Rosé over the Ruinart. 🤦🏾‍♂️ Oh well, back to BSR more regularly.

A nice switch up from the Billecart Salmon Rosé. On the nose; red fruit blend, fresh dark florals and red roses. The palate fruits are deeper/darker. Ripe; black cherries, black raspberries, strawberries, cherries w/ a touch of liqueur. Baguette crust, medium intensity of gray volcanic minerals, soft, powdery minerals with a touch of grittiness, beautiful acid and a rich, round, polished finish. Photos of; House of Ruinart, cellar, very old private cellar that I would love to dive into & one of their Grand Cru Vineyards. 375ml

A little break from the Billecart Salmon Rosé. The fruits are a little deeper & darker than the Billecart. Black cherries, black raspberries, dark cherries, cherries, strawberries, watermelon near the rhine, notes of citrus, soft smooth chalkiness that doesn’t penetrate the palate as deep or as sharp as the Billecart. Fuller bodied. The volcanic mineral are soft and beautiful. Micro bubbles and understated acidity that is still very nice. Brioche, saline, seashells, nicely textured and layered with a rich beautiful finish. Photos of; their house, Dom Thierry Ruinart, cellar and one of their vineyards.
