Scarborough on Hudson, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2007 -
Maison Ruinart, the oldest champagne house in the world, has invited an intimate group of notables to "Escape the City" with an extravagant picnic at a Vanderbilt Mansion in Scarborough. Guests will be helicoptered to and from the beautiful estate, where they will indulge in a picnic with the Escapade Picnic Basket.
The dazzling radiance of Ruinart's signature champagne is the source of inspiration behind the new Ruinart Escapade picnic basket. Going back to its core, the oldest champagne house in the world was inspired by the chardonnay grape, which lies at the heart of Ruinart's House style, to celebrate its passion for light along with its 100% Chardonnay blended champagne, Ruinart Blanc de Blancs.
A carefully planned picnic or a spur of the moment outing? The Ruinart Escapade picnic basket is designed to accompany champagne aficionados whatever the occasion. The design seems to have drawn inspiration from the sun itself, the fresh yellow leather adding a touch of light, setting off the elegant beige fabric with echoes of the spectacular tonality of the daytime star. Sophisticated finishings enhanced by the two-tone cane motif reminiscent of the elegance of the hampers of yesteryear. An interesting contrast that stands in perfect harmony with the fashion trend of spring summer 2007.
Naturally practical, the upright hamper makes for easy carrying. It can be opened with one hand, revealing a tray for serving the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs, 100% Chardonnay blended champagne, in four engraved champagne glasses. An insulated compartment takes care of keeping your bottle cool when summer warms up and a secret small drawer below the compartments where you can hide private delicacies… Finally the natural linen table runner creates a sophisticated, harmonious decor whatever the setting ... on a table, the beach or a natural spread of green.
So do not wait any longer and Escape the city with Ruinart's stylish picnic basket.
Ruinart Blanc de Blancs seems predestined for summer tastings, for its freshness and purity. Made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, its pure and vibrant golden colour, magnified by the transparent bottle, seems to reflect the warmth of summer light.
When tasting the champagne, the glitter of the sun is immediately apparent, with notes of fresh fruits and ripe citrus coming to the fore, followed by subtle secondary aromas, combining white floral and white peach notes. The attack is supple and harmonious, while the wine's natural freshness and lightness evolve in a sensuous blend of nectarines and grapefruit.
Its lively intensity is delicious when combined with savoury dishes, such as crisp summer vegetables. For dessert, a lemon tart or grapefruit sorbet will accompany it to perfection.
With a sun-drenched aperitif or the light, refined dishes composing a summertime meal, Ruinart Blanc de Blancs will unveil its radiantly pure finesse.
