Editorial Reviews for Mumm Napa Reserve Brut
Sweet on the nose with lots of brioche character and a little baked peach fruit topped with hints of smoke and Brie. This offers an attractive blend of aged character and fruit, with nice cut on entry, really quite firm, dry and transparent with fine mineral base notes and a layered, almost wood spice like palate impression. The fruit is cool and crisp and white with green apple skin and key lime pie notes then reverts to a mineral quality on the fairly long finish, revealing lovely complexity and length on the finish. 91pts

Smooth and easy to drink. Light floral and citrus notes.
Green apple on the nose. Smooth, creamy texture. Citrus, stone fruit and toast flavors. Very enjoyable.
Nice minerality, fair amount of tots. Wish there was more cream. Still very nice aperitif wine.
