Exuberant bubbles and a brilliant, golden colour testify to the vibrancy of this champagne. Lush aromas of ripe peach, apricot and pineapple cascade from the glass, chased by hints of vanilla and caramel, yeast, dried fruit and honey. Intense, complex flavors of fresh fruit and caramel that morph into a long, lingering finish.
GH Mumm was founded in 1827 by Georges H. Mumm and was one of the first Houses to start acquiring vineyards, beginning with grand cru parcels in Verzenay in 1840.
In 1875, the flagship champagne of the House was decorated with a red sash or ribbon as tribute to the Légion d'Honneur, France's highest civilian award. Bottles were presented to GH Mumm's best customers and this decoration became the hallmark of one of the world's most renowned champagnes, GH Mumm Cordon Rouge.
The House style is characterized by the high proportion of Pinot Noir used in its wines. It's a fresh, golden champagne with a stream of pétillant bubbles rising to the top of the glass, and soft aromas of lemon, grapefruit, white peach and apricot. Expect a long, lingering finish, full of vanilla, honey and caramel.
