First taste: Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2013

Tom Hewson reviews the Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2013, the latest release of this increasingly popular and highly-rated prestige cuvée.

‘The 2013 Chardonnays are beautiful, lean and sizzling,’ says Ruinart Chef de Cave Frédéric Panaïotis as we taste the new vintage of one of Champagne’s fastest-ascending prestige cuvées – Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs.

The previous release, 2010, is a hard act to follow. Acclaim for this otherwise under-the-radar vintage came from all quarters.

This included the title of World Champion at the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships and top spot in Decanter’s sizeable blind panel tasting of Blanc de Blancs in December 2023.

How does 2013 take the stage after such a successful release?
