Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

This wine is light-bodied and shows aromas of lemon and green apple with hints of dry toast.

Blanc de Blancs is a term used to describe Champagne that is made entirely from Chardonnay grapes; most Champagne is made from a combination of Chardonnay and the two black varieties, pinot noir and pinot meunier. A Champagne that is labeled Blanc de Blancs tends to be lighter and more delicate than a traditional Champagne. I have selected a beauty that I have rated at 94 points. This wine [$59.99; PLCB code: 29415] is light-bodied and shows aromas of lemon and green apple with hints of dry toast. The flavors are delicate and complex with a creamy finish. This wine comes in a clear bottle, which makes for an elegant presentation.
