Mumms Cordon Rouge Premier 5 NV

Winemaker's Notes:

A most distinctive Champagne with an extra dimension that makes it stand out from the pack. It offers pungent earthy, toasty aromas that melt on the palate into opulent, creamy flavors that linger with richness on the finish.(WS)

This was excellent champagne. The 1999 was very crisp and light. It was amazing - much better than more expensive wines like the perrier joet.

Not your regular bubbles. An excellent talking point wine, great with savory appetizers. A bit sweet, but not sticky, with nice bubbles. Not going to go well on it's own for more than a glass or two, but great fun as part of a set.

This wine is toasty and rich, with lots of malt, butter and strawberry flavors and a fresh backbone of acidity.

"The distinctiveness of the G.H.MUMM vineyard is reflected in the final blend: a predominance of Pinot Noir

Generous fruit flavors and a rich texture give this bright, rather soft Champagne a forward personality. Smooth in texture, ripe in flavor and difficult to resist.

In der Nase Aromen von Zitrusfrüchten, etwas Pfirsich und Aprikose, abgerundet durch leichte Noten von Vanille und Honig, im Geschmack komplex mit einer dominanten Note von frischen Früchten und leichtem Karamell. Ein lebhafter, eleganter und sehr gut strukturierter Champagner.

($40; L1350755311) Light gold. Musky pear and peach pit aromas are complemented by brown butter and dried flowers. Chewy and a bit sweet, offering spun sugar and cling peach flavors and a hint of white pepper. This rich, fleshy and seemingly off-dry ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Mumm, Domaine Cordon Rouge 750ml

Very aromatic, with floral and citrus flavors, a creamy texture and vibrant structure. Fine balance and personality here, with a lingering lemon note on the finish. Drink now.
