The Ruinart Champagne House
Ruinart is not only the oldest active champagne house, but also one of the noblest and most luxurious of its kind. Ruinart can look back on three centuries of history: The foundation was laid by Nicolas Ruinart, the nephew of the Benedictine monk Dom Thierry Ruinart. And to this day, the champagnes are aged in the house’s lime vaults, which were acquired in 1769. Ruinart champagnes are unmistakable in character, appearance and taste: harmonious, clear, aromatic and delicate.
