Mumm Napa Champagne Blend Napa Valley Dvx 2001
This prestigious tête de cuvée honors the visionary work of Guy Devaux. DVX wines capture the soul of Napa Valley fruit through meticulous selection of the best lots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The 2001 DVX offers a brilliant golden-yellow hue with a gentle stream of tiny bubbles. As is the tradition with DVX, the 2001 DVX is complex, rich and nicely balanced. Toasted brioche with a hint of oak spice greet you on the nose, followed by green apple, ripe freestone peaches and fresh raspberry on the palate. The 2001 DVX has a lovely vanilla creaminess on the mid palate and ends with a lingering, refreshing finish. Overall, it balances complexity and power with an elegant finesse that has become the signature DVX style.
oak spice and creamy vanilla, a hazel-nuttiness with fresh citrus characteristics, wonderful complexity and lingering finish.
Liked this wine a lot. I got hints of honey, yeast and citrus in the nose. Good acidity with honey (vanilla?) again in the taste with a long finish.
50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. 30% barrel fermented some some malo-lactic fermentation. Blended from 12 lots. This wine received 92 points from the Wine Spectator and 94 from Wine Enthusiast. It's a delicate wine, with a lemony cream nose. Tart and crisp, with a soft biscuit flavor. Clean finish on a soft mousse of bubbles with good persistence.
Great flavor and structure! - WS Grand Tour 2011

Yellowing straw in color. The moderately intense bouquet brings French champagne to mind, as aromas of lemon meringue and brioche are easily noted. Fairly full bodied, this cuvée shows more structural aspects to its texture with dried citrus dominati... Chuck Hayward.

A gorgeous, Champagne-like sparkling wine. As good as the 2000, it's rich and silky, with a very fine mousse and rich citrus and yeast flavors. Needs time. Give it at least five or six years in the bottle, if you can keep your hands off. - S.H. Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2001 Mumm Cuvee Napa DVX Napa Valley 750ml
