List of products by brand Ruinart
At the origin of everything we find the name of the Benedictine monk Dom Thierry Ruinart, who lived at the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, theologian and historian, but above all a brilliant, intuitive and visionary person, who at only 23 years, hearing about a new wine still called "Champagne" but particularly in vogue among the Parisian aristocrats, he was able to understand that what was then identified as "vin de bulles", or wine with bubbles, would have a great future. From here he started the story of what is the oldest Maison in the entire Champagne region. A story that officially began on 1 September 1729, when Nicolas Ruinart, 33, a drapery merchant in Reims like the father and grandson of Dom Thierry Ruinart, opened his first accounting register dedicated to the “vin de bulles”. The first bottles are intended for its traditional customers as a gift after the purchase of drapes and fabrics. But Nicolas is a shrewd and refined businessman, gifted with the same pioneering vision as his uncle Thierry Ruinart. History proves him right: only six years later the family abandoned the textile trade to devote themselves to the Champagne trade. The Maison grows rapidly: from 170 bottles sold in 1730 to over 36 thousand in 1761, up to its definitive success in the nineteenth century. A style based on chardonnay and its elegance, without ever losing sight of density and volume. Whether they are Champagne Brut, Champagne Blanc de Blancs or Champagne Rosé, all the Champagne branded Ruinart are unique and recognizable Champagnes, characterized by an unparalleled purity, and which are absolutely worth all the price they cost. Purchased in 1963 by Moët et Chandon, now part of the largest LVMH group, the Ruinart brand continues to be indisputably synonymous with the best and most excellent Champagnes.
