Mumm Napa Champagne Blend Napa Valley Cuvée Napa Blanc de Blancs 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Gris, this wine delivers a refreshing crispness and a rich palate. Aromas of fresh golden apples, ripe pear, stone fruit and lemon custard meld with hints of melon and white blossoms. Extended yeast aging in the bottle highlights nuances of warm brioche, toasted nuts, and vanilla beans. Pairs beautifully with crab cakes, calamari, sauted prawns over angel hair pasta.
