Since 1876, the iconic cuvee with its bold red sash signals the start of a memorable moment: good times with good friends. Blended from a palette of 120 crus, Mumm Cordon Rouge expresses the rich diversity of Champagne’s terroirs, always in the fresh, vibrant style that is the signature of Pinot Noir, the House’s emblematic grape.
Made from a rich palette of more than 120 vintages representing all the diversity of the Champagne region of France, Mumm Cordon Rouge is the signature cuvee of Maison Mumm. This exceptional brut champagne blends Mumm’s signature grape variety, Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and Aube; with Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, Sézannais, Vitryat and Aube; and Meunier from the Marne and Ardre valleys and the Montagne de Reims.
Mumm Cordon Rouge is beautifully presented in an iconic bottle adorned with a red ribbon thathas paid homage to the Legion of Honour since 1876.
Aged for a minimum of 20 months in Maison Mumm’s cellars, this wine is ideal as an aperitif among friends or a lazy Sunday brunch –those moments when everything simply clicks and positive energy flows: real friends sharing real talk, everyone at ease in a joyful, convivial atmosphere.
Appearance A clear and bright golden yellow in colour, its abundant, delicate bubbles testify to this champagne’s elegance and vigour.
Fragrance The nose reveals initial aromas of ripe fresh fruit (white and yellow peaches, apricots), tropical notes (lychee or 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.
Taste Freshness bursts onto the palate, followed by great length in the mouth, and subtle, rich bubbles. Perfect balance combines with round, ample vinosity; complex aromas of fresh fruit and caramel prolong the intensity before blossoming into a wonderfully round finish.
