The 2007 Dom Ruinart is the first vintage made entirely by Chef de Caves Frédéric Panaïotis, which shows just how long the production cycle is in Champagne. A striking, tightly-coiled wine, the 2007 Dom Ruinart will leave readers week at the knees. In this vintage, Panaïotis took Dom Ruinart, which has traditionally relied on a relatively high percentage of Chardonnay from the Montagne de Reims and tilted the balance to 75% Côtes des Blancs and 25% Montagne de Reims fruit. As a result, the 2007 is much more chiseled and steely than is the norm. The citrus, slate, crushed rock, white pepper, mint and floral notes really sizzle in this powerful, dramatically rich Champagne, with bright saline notes that add freshness and vivacity to the striking finish. The 2007 is a stunning Champagne by any measure. Although it is very early, the 2007 has the potential to go down as one of the great Dom Ruinarts. It is every bit that special. Dosage is under 5 grams per liter, a pretty striking change from the 2006, which was closer to 10. Readers who can grab the 2007 won’t want to miss it. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Disgorged in November 2017 with five grams per liter dosage, the 2007 Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs opens in the glass with a lively bouquet of citrus oil, warm bread, green apple and oyster shell, linden and beeswax. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, taut and chiseled, with a taut and concentrated core, racy acids and a long, chalky finish. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

This is a beautiful wine with minerality, toast and tight acidity mingling with the citrus flavors that are still very present. The balance of the wine is impeccable, on the cusp between youth and maturity at the point when it has just become truly ready to drink. - RV, Wine Enthusiast

Hints of toast and lime blossom on the nose accent the palate's apricot, lemon pastry, candied ginger and crystallized honey flavors in this rich and creamy blanc de blancs. Firm and finely balanced by a chinalike frame of acidity, with the finish echoing hints of smoke, coffee liqueur and spice. Disgorged September 2017. Drink now through 2028. - Alison Napjus

A lot to like here with a fresh array of mandarins, grapefruit and oranges. Super fresh, ripe and vibrant, there’s plenty of toast and minerals, too. The palate is built in a very supple, attractive and powerful style, holding concentrated, fleshy fruit throughout. Has plenty of time ahead. Drink or hold. - James Suckling
Bright lemon-gold in colour with green highlights. It has a filigreed mousse and potentially classy grand cru Chardonnay aromas of citrus. There's a saline whiff of top terroirs and an impressive, structured presence on the mid-palate, bordered by a mineral frame of classic reductive style. It's still very youthful but with another year of bottle age it should develop a characterful vinosity in tune with the notes of spicy lemon confit, a panoply of fresh orchard fruits, peach and pear, and a touch of dried apricot. It's definitely a keeper. Drink with simply cooked salmon, trout, turbot, or lobster. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030. - Michael Edwards
