The Story

THE CREATION

The best batches are carefully selected, vinified and aged separately. Only some ten crus deserve this special treatment: the very best villages of the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. Among them we find a predominance of Pinot Noir (64%) which marks the House’s style. Time is needed to reveal the fullness of Nature’s bounty. Ageing on the lees is patiently continued for five years. When the wine is judged to be ready, the dosage with a very low sugar content of 6g/l brings it out without altering it. For all these reasons G.H.MUMM Millésimé is a wine for laying down, that can be kept in a cellar for some ten years.

WINE TALK: OVER TO THE CELLAR MASTER

"The nose reveals the fine and rich complexity of this wine, starting with notes of apple and pear as well as yellow fruits such as apricot or plum, followed later by the aromas of dried fruits and nuts with some notes of pastry. After a strong attack the finish is well-defined and long."

Written Notes

We had three incredible Champagnes as cocktails, a 1976 Lanson (94), 1961 Mumm’s (94) and a 1929 Pommery. The Lanson and Mumm’s were both excellent and still fresh, but the Pommery was an out-of-body experience.
