The Story

As the Champagne des Souverains, so great was the fame of the Cordon Rouge wine that it became the symbol of the House and of champagne as a whole. The wine lovers of today continue to worship G.H.MUMM Cordon Rouge and have made the cuvée France's premier and one of the world's favourite champagnes.

Georges Hermann Mumm is the man to whom we owe the House's iconic cuvée. In 1876, to assert the quality of its champagne, the House decided to adorn their bottles with a red silk ribbon, a reference to the Ordre de Saint Louis and to the Grand Cordon de la Légion d'Honneur. Its success was immediate: a symbol of G.H.MUMM's excellence and expertise, the Cordon Rouge cuvée henceforth became a true benchmark all over the world.

APPERANCEThis champagne is a brightly sparkling, light golden yellow liquid with an abundance of fine and elegant bubbles.

FRAGRANCEThe nose reveals initial aromas of ripe fresh fruit (white and yellow peaches, apricots), tropical notes (lychee and pineapple). It then opens up with the fragrance of vanilla before developing notes of milky caramel, breadcrumbs and yeast, culminating in aromas of dried fruit and honey.

TASTEAn explosion of freshness in the mouth, followed by strong persistence. The complex aromas of fresh fruit and caramel perpetuate the intensity.

ENJOYING

G.H.MUMM's champagne rituals introduce 21st-century devotees to new ways of enjoying champagne. This cuvée fully expresses its aromas and structure when served at 8°C.

CRAFTING

The style of every G.H.MUMM Cordon Rouge cuvée is a constant, subtle balance of freshness and intensity:

• A cuvée blended from 77 crus, every one unique

• The grape variety traditionally used by G.H.MUMM, Pinot Noir (45%) endows the wine with structure and strength

• Chardonnay blend (30%) that ensures both finesse and elegance

• The fruity, sharp and well-rounded notes of Pinot Meunier (25%) complete the blend

• A separate pressing and vinification for each grape variety and cru, to ensure a wide range of aromas and taste sensations

• 25% to 30% addition of reserve wine which brings depth to the final blend

• A residual sugar content of 8g/l to remain constant and true to the G.H.MUMM style

NV (10's)

Didier Mariotti and his team of wine experts are responsible for perpetuating, year after year, the House signature. This demands long experience and a certain degree of talent! They have no less than 77 grape varieties to choose from, each unique. The distinctiveness of the G.H.MUMM vineyard is reflected in the final blend: a predominance of Pinot Noir, a strong presence of Chardonnay and a touch of Pinot Meunier. To complete the union and ensure stylistic consistency, the Cellar Master adds 25% to 30% of reserve wine which brings additional complexity and depth to the final blend. After several years ageing, the light balanced dosage of G.H.MUMM expresses the identity of the cuvée, embodying both the character of the Champagne terroir and the talent of the winemaker.

The style: over to the Cellar Master
“The signature cuvée demands that its style, a subtle balance of freshness and intensity, be perpetuated”.


The man who would eventually give his initials to the House is also the man to whom we owe its iconic cuvée. As a winemaker, Georges Hermann Mumm was driven by a single motto: "only the best". In 1876, in tribute to the wine on which the reputation of the House is founded, he decided to ornament the bottle with a red silk ribbon, a symbol of the highest of French honours, the Ordre Royal et Militaire de Saint Louis then the Grand Cordon de la Légion d'Honneur.
As the Champagne des Souverains, so great was the fame of the Cordon Rouge wine that it became the symbol of the House and of champagne as a whole.

The wine lovers of today continue to worship G.H.MUMM Cordon Rouge and have made the cuvée France's premier and one of the world's favourite champagnes.

Written Notes

NOTE Mumm är ett av de absolut största champagnehusen. Man har ett speciellt stadigt grepp om den amerikanska marknaden, som verkligen älskar Cordon Rouge. Standardchampagnen har förbättrats dramatiskt på senare år. För några år sedan en anständig champagne, därefter ett djupt ras. Får se vad talangfulle vinmakaren Didier Mariotti kan åstadkomma. Mjuk och kolasmakande med bra täthet och lite mjölkchokladaromer, men lite för mycket godis för att vara perfekt. Klart bättre på magnum.
