With a legacy of almost two centuries behind it – the House of G.H. MUMM, established in 1827, still aspires to the original aims of the great Georges Hermann Mumm, one of the father figures of the House. His passion was to achieve the highest possible quality for G.H. MUMM champagnes: time after time he was heard to say “Only the Best”. In 1875, he decided to decorate each of his bottles with the prized Cordon Rouge or red sash of the Légion d’Honneur, the highest French civilian distinction, created by Napoleon I. Over and above the symbol of excellence that it represents, the Cordon Rouge embodies the true spirit that drives the House: the quest for perfection, a spirit of adventure and panache. he flagship Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut embodies the G.H. MUMM House style of freshness, elegance and power from the quality of the Pinot Noir in the blend. This style has been passed down from one Cellarmaster to another since 1827 and our current Cellarmaster continues this tradition today.
A fresh golden yellow with jade tints, an elegant stream of bubbles rising to form a rich, lively foam. The nose develops aromas of lemon and grapefruit, with notes of white peach, apricot and acidulous apple. Lingering notes of vanilla, dried fruit and honey. Complex fresh fruit and caramel flavours are the mark of a great wine. A touch of acidity and remarkable length in the mouth make a consistently delightful finish.
