Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs second skin 2010

0 reviews

The 2010 vintage was marked by a crisp spring with temperatures significantly below the ten-year average. The lower temperature lasted until the plants bloomed and delayed the winemaking cycle by five days. The summer of 2010 actually started well, it was not too hot or too cold, and compared to the ten-year average, the summer rainfall deficit was 25%. Everything changed in mid-August, when the grapes began to ripen in torrential rains in the Champagne region (two months of rain fell at a time). Extreme conditions – incessant heat and humidity – favored the development of the fungus Botrytis cinerea, which attacked, in particular, the grapes of the Pinot Noir and Meunier varieties. Chardonnay, which was less sensitive during this period, fortunately escaped the damage. September was the softest month. Harvesting began on September 15 of Chardonnay , and the optimal quality was preserved until the end of the harvest. The 2010 Chardonnays were characterized by a high potential alcohol content, as well as a good level of acidity: this balance allowed our winemakers to use all their skills when mixing Chardonnays.
