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.

Written Notes

The second bubbly was courtesy of the King, and it was much cleaner and fresher, with delicate wintry vanilla aromas. There was also nice dry hay and straw aromas, and hints of half ‘n half. The palate was round, delicate and deft with pleasant, light yellow hues. Wendy observed, ‘high acidity,’ and her other half, Gentleman Jim, noted, ‘delicate fizz and some still-wine character with the frizzante on the back.’ It was a late-disgorged 1941 Mumm’s Cordon Rouge, disgorged sometime in the ‘80s or ‘90s per Ray. It was excellent (93).
