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. Winemaker's Notes A long aging provides additional flavors of vanilla, roasted nuts and a hint of toast. A result of the carefully chosen infusion of terroir and reserve wines, the finish is long. Imparting to the finish is lightness from Chardonnay, fruitiness from Pinot Noir and roundness provided by Pinot Meunier.
Wine Spectator - "Toast and dried fruit notes mix in this very harmonious dry Champagne, which is full of flavor—dried apricot, candied orange peel, nut and smoke—but still elegant and light-weight. The rich, toasty note lingers on the vibrant finish.
