We visited 6 champagne houses over 2 days, and Ruinart is my favourite. The highlight for me is the steep climb down to the chalk cellars, the detailed history and information provided by our wine guide (sorry, forgot her name) and the wonderful tour of the cellars. It was amazing to see tool marks left by workmen who worked in the chalk quarry from years ago, and to stand in the middle of one of the large chalk pits, and look up into the blue sky.
Tasting was done in a very comfortable We tasting 2 champagnes, including a Brut 2002.
