Mumm Napa Blanc de Noirs Napa County Napa Valley United States California
The color was a pale salmon pink, tinting slightly toward orange. It had a steady stream of small bubbles. There was a lot of fruit on the nose, strawberry, banana, and a hint, a tiny hint, of lemon zest. Minerality, not fruit, drove the attack, plus a little bit of lime. Some banana and white grapefruit appeared on the mid-palate, with mineral and lemon juice on the finish. It was tart, bright, acidic and clean.
Crisp, dry sparkler with small/medium bead, a pale strawberry color, and lots of berries and biscuit in the palate. Great QPR.
