Dom Ruinart Rosé 2007 is a refined, dynamic wine with a strong character. On the nose, roasted notes mingle with aromas of ripe citrus fruit. The nose immediately expresses a warm, sunny aroma, edged with roasted notes of coffee and cocoabean, and mingled with toffee apple and ripe citrus like tangerine, bloodorange and kumquat.
On the palate, the Chardonnay provides freshness and a crisp character full of integrity. The finish is beautifully structured with contained power, allowing the Pinot Noir to express itself with a fine bitterness highlighted by the low dosage. The honest and precise impact of the vintage 2007 is impressive: damson and hibiscus aromas are enhanced with pronounced ripe citrus notes, including blood orange. It brings hints of tree sap, with wonderful freshness on the finish.
It is perfect to be served with both sea food dishes such as salmon tataki or marinated tuna, but also meat like Bresse poultry or veal. It can still be paired with the same ingredient but the notes expressed will be more intense, smokier and spicier.
