The Oddbins Take

Dom Thierry Ruinart was a visionary Benedictine monk who lived from 1657-1709 and was instrumental in the development of sparkling wine. That's got to be one of the greatest contributions a monk has made to the secular world. He certainly did more than that Friar Huberd in The Canterbury Tales, didn't he live in a cupboard or something? O wait, no, that's a salty sailor's limerick that shouldn't be shared in polite company. Throughout his life, Dom Thierry Ruinart would visit his brother at his home in Champagne and relayed his conviction that 'vin de mousse' had a promising future.


In 1729, twenty years after the death of Dom Ruinart, Nicolas Ruinart, Dom Ruinart's nephew, founded the first Champagne House, Maison Ruinart, and forever ingrained his uncle's name and the house in the history books. With an elegant toasted aroma, balanced with fresh floral notes and succulent stone fruit flavours, Dom Ruinart vintage champagne is a monument to the great man's prestigious legacy.
