Wine Spectator 90
Framed by firm acidity, this vivacious Champagne is almost crunchy in texture, showing harmony to the flavors of white peach, grated ginger, clover honey and candied lemon zest. Delivers a mouthwatering, chalk-tinged finish.
"The bubbles are rich on the palate, but never overpowering. The perfect balance is combined with a rounded, full vinosity. The mix of fresh fruit and caramel aromas give even more intensity to the finish. This is a subtly balanced wine with a remarkable capacity to linger in the mouth." ~Winery Notes

Mumm was founded in 1827, and its well-known Cordon Rouge was launched by 1875, decorated with the now-famous red ribbon of the Legion of Honor. The firm owns 540 acres of vineyards throughout the Champagne region, and is the largest company in Reims. Since its founding, the house of Mumm has been regarded as one of the most famous names in Champagne. Its Champagnes are crafted from a palette of prestigious crus with varied flavors that offer each cuvée finesse, elegance and freshness. 80% of production undergoes remuage in gyropalettes, but the cuveés de prestige are still handled manually. Mumm is the second-largest selling Champagne in the United States.
