Driven by a constant quest for excellence, Ruinart selected Chardonnay, a rare and aromatic grape variety, as the common golden thread for all its cuvées. Since its founding, the House has crafted exceptional wines by nurturing the roots of its terroir. As Ruinart prepares for its fourth century, the House is deepening its commitment to sustainability and preserving the soils that are a source of life for all its Champagnes.
As a child, Frédéric Panaïotis spent much of his time in the small Champagne vineyards of his grandparents, sampling the fruits of their labor. As Chef de Cave of Ruinart, he has the responsibility of creating the House’s blends, from the non-vintage Blanc de Blancs and Rosé to the prestige cuvées of Ruinart, Dom Ruinart, and Dom Ruinart Rosé.
“Champagne has that magic in that you can create things which will sometimes be enjoyed by future generations.”
Frédéric Panaïotis, Chef de Cave
