This bottle is G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge with a black label instead of a white label.
This champagne is a brightly sparkling, light golden yellow liquid with an abundance of fine and elegant bubbles.
The nose reveals initial aromas of ripe fresh fruit (white and yellow peaches, apricots), tropical notes (lychee and pineapple). It then opens up with the fragrance of vanilla before developing notes of milky caramel, breadcrumbs and yeast, culminating in aromas of dried fruit and honey.
An explosion of freshness in the mouth, followed by strong persistence. The complex aromas of fresh fruit and caramel perpetuate the intensity.
About G.H. Mumm
Founded in 1827 in the heart of Champagne, Champagne Mumm is recognized as a leading grand marque whose reputation has been built on the quality of both its non-vintage bruts and select vintage wines. Located in Reims, France, Champagne Mumm is situated in the heart of Champagne atop 16 miles of vaulted caves of chalk. Each glass of Champagne Mumm is infused with a long-standing passion for terroir, advanced winemaking techniques and a meticulous approach to blending.
Young winemaker Dominique Demarville creates Champagnes of consistent finesse and elegance by drawing fruit from 525 estate acres, which boast an average 98% première cru rating. Grapes from 100% grand cru Cramant vineyards are used exclusively for the single village bottling of Mumm de Cramant as well as for blending in the non-vintage Cordon Rouge.
Each year, Demarville creates cuvées from over 2,000 component wines, drawing fruit from over 700 growers in addition to the estate's own vineyards. When accentuated with Mumm's highly rated vineyards, these combined crus rate an average of 94% and distinguish G.H. Mumm as one of the highest ranking producers of non-vintage Champagnes. Because Mumm Champagnes are made from a greater percentage of prestigious cru vineyards, they require bottle aging up to two and three times the amount of time required by French regulations in order to accentuate their complexity.
