The Ruinart Interpretation Giftbox contains a bottle of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs and eight vials; each containing one of the principal aromas that make up its bouquet (jasmine, lemon, citron, pineapple, peach, pink peppercorn, ginger and cardamom). Thin strips of unscented paper are neatly stored in a small drawer used to help participants play the Interpretation game, guess the various smells found in the individual vials. You have a card with 18 possible aromas on and as you smell each of the 8 unidentified aromas, you must try and match them to the correct aroma on the card.
It is for wine lovers, connoisseurs and beginners alike – a fun and dynamic way to discover the bouquet of a cuvee wine.
It will be stocked at Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges for £85.
