The Twelve Days of Christmas are drawing to a close and we are just hours away from the arrival of the Wise Men and their gifts to Bethlehem following their star. And the star of the Twelfth Day of Christmas is Ruinart’s Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2010 which has been awarded the coveted title of Best Champagne of the Year 2022 and Best Sparkling Wine of the Year. It is the second time in a row (last year it was the magnum of Dom Ruinart Rosé 2004) that the house of Ruinart has received this highly coveted distinction from the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships. The award ceremony was held in the Merchants Taylors Hall of London and the Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2010 was also attributed the title of Supreme World Champion.

The Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2010 has the particularity of being aged beneath a cork capsule — held in place by a very thick staple — instead of metal. A process which sublimates the champagne’s already superb gourmet taste. The Maison Ruinart was founded in 1729 and is regarded as the oldest of the champagne houses. The house has a particular expertise in the art of the Chardonnay grape variety which composes the house’s impeccable Blanc de Blancs.
