TASTING NOTES

"The 2004 Dom Ruinart is just as brilliant and viscerally thrilling as it has always been. If anything, the 2004 has shut down considerably over the last six months. Tightly coiled and exceptionally beautiful, the 2004 boasts fabulous intensity, class and pedigree. The flavors are vibrant, chiseled and crystalline in their precision. Time in bottle is doing wonders for the 2004. This is a tremendous showing. Disgorged June 2013." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Showing an impressive backbone of acidity, this is dense and powerful, yet harmonious overall. The fine, creamy mousse swathes the statuesque frame in a silky texture, with honeysuckle, graphite and hazelnut notes lending fragrant accents to the rich palate of baked white peach, toasted brioche, lemon confit and smoke. Drink now through 2030." Wine Spectator

"This is deep and more layered than many with an already complex and sweet-smelling nutty and toasty edge; it really has a very deliberate, almost showy style of toasty character. It opens to revel in freshly squeezed lemon juice and peach fruits, grilled nuts and hints of spices and flowers. Very, very complex. The palate has compression and focus with really impressive acidity and a long, super-attractive mid-palate. There's an almost sherbet-like fresh layer in the midst of great depth, drive and focus. All the while, it retains a thread of creamy, fleshy fruit presence. Dosage is lowest ever for Dom Ruinart in 2004 at 5.5g per litre. A vintage Blanc de Blancs from exclusively Grand Cru vineyards: 69% Côte des Blancs and the balance from Montagne de Reims. This has spent 9 years on the lees and was disgorged in August 2014 (note multiple disgorgements of this vintage)." JamesSuckling.com
