About Second Skin:
Champagne is on a mission to lower its footprint. This package is beautiful and protective... and made from 100% recycled product. This is 100% the same wine but upgraded with the protective skin that keeps light away, reduces heat penetration and replaces the bulky and expensive plastic sleeves many brands continue to use for marketing purposes. We offer both - the wine in the Second Skin for gifting and long term cellarage ... or the wine without the skin for a few dollars less.
Overview of the Wine
Founded in 1729, Ruinart is the first established champagne house in the world, born from the ambition of Dom Ruinart’s true enlightened mind. His vision made him perceive before anyone else the potential of sparkling wines from the Champagne region. Each of Ruinart’s cuvées bears the distinctive signature of Chardonnay, the House’s emblematic grape variety. Elegance, refinement, purity, light and distinctive taste make Ruinart a timeless and modern icon.
The history of Ruinart rosé, the very first rosé champagne to make its appearance, dates back to the 18th century. While Ruinart rosé champagne first appeared over 250 years ago, its excellent quality remains the essential feature of the production of this delicate wine to this day.
Grape / Blend
55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
On the eye: A sublime golden-pink color leading to the color of a coral rose petal; a persistent stream of fine and delicate bubbles
On the nose: A very fine, subtle fruity nose, dominated by the aroma of cherries and freshly gathered red berries, creating a wonderful bouquet
On the palate: Excellent opening with a balanced, good fresh palate, giving the wine great elegance. A good fine, supple, rounded silky wine with intense generous notes of red fruits, gentle spices enlivened with a touch of mint for a long bold finish
An ideal vintage for evening aperitifs. Its finesses and fruitiness is a wonderful match for the fresh liveliness of an Andalucian gazpacho or a salmon sashimi. For dessert it will marry well with a red fruit soup.

This offers all the trim sleekness of a well-built racing sailboat, while the flavors unfurl on the palate like a full spinnaker sail. Macerated raspberry and poached apricot fruit is underscored by smoke and toast notes, and pleasing hints of crystallized honey, tangerine zest and dried thyme echo on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2030

Fragrant with raspberry and hibiscus, this is a vibrant rose. Light pink in color, the wine has touches of sweetness that don't get in the way of its powerful personality. It shares the Middle Eastern spice notes of the Blanc de Blancs, here matched with delicate red fruit. Pour it with lacquered duck.
