This special cuvée is a tribute to Dom Thierry Ruinart, the Benedictine monk who inspired his cousin Nicolas Ruinart with his vision to found Maison Ruinart in 1729. Completely in line with the essence of the house, this valuable champagne is made from 100% Grand Cru chardonnay, for the 2009 vintage, 82% of the grapes come from the Côte des Blancs (mainly from Chouilly, Le Mesnil, Oger and Avize) and 18% from the north side of the Montagne de Reims (mainly from Sillery and Verzenay). This Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2010 vintage brings with it a sense of seduction. The 2010 harvest year started with a cool spring, well below the long-term average, which delayed the cycle by up to 5 days. The summer was quite dry, there was about 25% less rain than average. However, in August the equivalent of 2 months of rainfall fell in heavy showers in a short time. In the humid heat, however, the Pinot Noir and Meunier grapes suffered more from the Botrytis cinerea fungus than the Chardonnay. September was a milder month and the quality of the grapes was guaranteed from the start of the harvest on September 15 to the end. The champagne has been cellared for 9 years and is bottled with an extra brut dosage of 4 gr/l. The strong flavors and intense freshness of this vintage combine very well with food. Think of Périgord pork fillet with nutmeg, Jerusalem artichoke and roasted chestnut shavings or leek – roasted, pureed, fried – with potato and truffle sabayon.

The top of Ruinart is the Dom Ruinart - The 2010 Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs, the first vintage since the 1960s to feature tirage under natural cork instead of bottle caps and was disgorged in November 2021. The 2010 Dom Ruinart has an intense, chalky minerality and energy but also a richness in the mid-palate to balance the balance. Candied lemon, marzipan, white flowers, slate and white pepper are some of the many aromas and flavors that take shape in the glass. As good as 2010 is today, it will be even better in a few years. According to Antonio Galloni's 2023 review, the Dom Ruinart 2010 is one of the most impressive champagnes ever made here. He ends with: "If there is anything better, I don't think I have tasted it!"
