Mumm Napa Champagne Blend Napa Valley Dvx 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

This prestigious release honors the visionary work of our founder Guy Devaux. Our winemakers rigorously select fruit from more than 45 separate vineyards and 90 different lots. Only 14 small lots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir made it into the 2000 DVX release. To craft this wine, individual lots are kept separate during fermentation to highlight individual vineyard character, creating a final blend of power and complexity. On the palate, DVX explodes with white and red berry flavors, with creamy layers of fresh, fig, white cherry and vanilla bean, supported by a refreshing acidity. The long-lasting finish is dominated by biscuit, toast and nutty flavors on a long, lingering finish.

Lovely sparkling wine. Very well balanced with nice sharp acidity. Biscuit and dough aromas with some green apple. Medium finish with tartness and green apple.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine ReviewRated 9550% Pinot Noir; 50% Chardonnay. There is a very sophisticated edge of toasted biscuit and creamy yeast to the austerely fruity, complex aromas of this fully champenized wine. Its bubbles are full and foamy but never coarse, and its balance of autolysis and lean yet friendly fruit hits the mark as well. It is lengthy and richly yeasty at the finish with yet somehow finds a hint of delicacy as it ends, and everything about this beautifully crafted, delightful bottling sends it to the head of the class.Wine Tasting NotesIn appearance, the wine has a brilliant golden-yellow tint with a distinctive gentle stream of tiny bubbles. Complex aromas are accentuated by tones of wild strawberry, honeysuckle, pear, and acacia blossoms as well as spicy tones of toffee and white chocolate. The wine explodes on the palate with flavors of white peach and pear all completing with a smooth and creamy finish dominated by biscuit and caramel.

An hommage to the winery's late great winemaker Guy Devaux Mumm's vintage-dated DVX is their tte de cuve a selection of the finest lots of grapes which are then given white glove treatment. The 2000 is a worthy successor to its predecessors rich smooth and dramatic. It has the silky finesse of great Champagne with charming lime raspberry vanilla and smoky dough flavors. Should age well. Drink now2010.
