Sparkling & Champagne
Tasting Note: A bubbling mouthful of yellow peach and apricots, with a scattering of toasted nuts and the discreet presence of yeast and vanilla.
Food Matching: Perfect with grilled fish or roast meat to tantalise your taste buds, or simply make a toast to life… This is a Mumm Cordon Rouge moment.
Vineyard: Based in Reims, Mumm Cordon Rouge is selected from over 300 base wines and aged for a minimum of 20 months in the Maison’s cellar prior to release. There is a light dosage of 8 grams per litre. The Mumm style is led by the high proportioin of Pinot Noir in the blend which gives a light and fresh style.
Vinification: The wines from each cru are carefully blended together and then complemented with between 10 and 20% reserve wines from the G.H. MUMM stocks to add maturity and richness to the complexity of the final cuvée. These reserve wines are kept in vats for two, three or even four years and some are aged on the lees for added body and flavour. The wine is then bottled to undergo the secondary fermentation, following which it matures in the cellars for at least three years before disgorgement. Finally, the liqueur de dosage, comprising of several still wines, some aged for at least two years in stainless steel vats, with around 10 g/l of sugar, is added to bring out the full character of the Cordon Rouge blend.
