Editorial Reviews for Mumm Napa Champagne Blend Napa Valley Cuvée Napa Brut Prestige
Very nice nose with a touch of chalk, some funghi notes, hints of torrone candy, and sandy soil top note. On the palate this is very fresh though the dosage is a bit on the high side accentuating the sweetness of the fruit, which is fantastically ripe, luscious and delicious. 89pts
Slightly toasted, almond and yeasty flavors with some pear and a nice creamy finish.
Not much to see here, definitely don't agree with Wine Spectator on this one. Sort of like Dan Quayle: reasonably smart, but appears moronic compared to everything else that's available.
toasty, yeasty notes on the nose and more citrus filled on the palate - apples and lemons, very nice acidity
A crowd pleaser. Nice bright fruit, decent acidity, and a mass-produced appeal. A good value at $15.
A very pale Champagne, very sparkly. Rustic and slightly barn yard on the nose which I wasnt a fan of. Its very soft and has a fair amount of residual sugar - comes across slightly flabby to me. Short finish. Not terrible, just average - very industrial/commercial.
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
Impressive prolific tiny bubbles, everything you would want in a brut sparkler at half the price. Red fruits, a bit of citrus, and fruitcake with candied fruit. Considering the quality to price ratio, Spectator is reasonable in putting this in their top 100, but I did try one I would rank a bit higher, a sparkling Blaufrankisch Rose 2005 from Gesellmann in Austria. http://www.snooth.com/wine/blaufrankisch-sekt-gesellmann-gesellmann-deutschkreutz-nv/ I agree with Greg, about 89 points, not quite 90.
External Reviews for Mumm Napa Champagne Blend Napa Valley Cuvée Napa Brut Prestige
A nearly perfect Carneros sparkler. It is made with mostly Pinot Noir as evidenced by its copper tint and slight cherry flavor. Effervescent, clean and structured. The apotheosis of California sparklers.
48 on 2010 Top 100; Crisp and elegantly styled with floral apple and yeasty spice aromas that lead to layered flavors of baked pear citrus and creamy vanilla. Drink now. 125 000 cases made. -TF Wine Spectator.
This is Mumm Napa's workhorse brut. It's a beautiful sparkling wine that satisfies that basics of elegance and lusciousness. Shows raspberry, lime, brioche and smoky flavors, with a slightly sweet dosage and a refined mousse.
Vibrant and crisp, with citrus and raspberry aromas and appealing apple, cinnamon and spice flavors. Drink now.
Clean, light scents of pinot noir grapes give this a simple line. It's on the soft side of dry. For aperitifs.
Crisp and elegantly styled, with floral apple and yeasty spice aromas that lead to layered flavors of baked pear, citrus and creamy vanilla. Drink now.
Assembled from dozens of individual lots, this sumptuous brut is an example of the art of blending. Based on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, it's really as delicious and refined a sparkling wine as you could want for drinking now;. Shows lush citrus, strawberry, honey, melon, fig and spice flavors that are wrapped into a smooth, silky bubbling mouthfeel.
The naturally ripened fruit selected from more than 50 separate vineyards yields a beautiful rose petal aroma. Further layers reveal crisp yet creamy qualities, rich and lingering. Individual lots are kept separate during initial fermentation in order to highlight their vineyard differences and make the most of their specific strengths. The end result is a hugely popular, award winning wine with touches of vanilla and melon, with firm acid and crisp structure. Medium bodied, with excellent mousse and a rich lingering finish, it pairs beautifully with grilled poultry, shellfish such as oysters, prawns and mussels, as well as brioche with portobello mushrooms.
