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.

This must be one of the most familiar nonvintage Champagnes, so it’s good to be able to report that it is much improved. The dosage has been lowered, and there is considerable freshness, crispness with apple and toast. It is full-bodied but well balanced.

Toast and dried fruit notes mix in this very harmonious dry Champagne, which is full of flavor — dried apricot, candied orange peel, nut and smoke — but still elegant and lightweight. The rich, toasty note lingers on the vibrant finish. Drink now through 2020.

The most natural way to celebrate joyful occasions and historic events, Cordon Rouge is the unrivalled symbol of champagne all over the world. A true classic with a unique character and irreproachably consistent taste, its name alone conjures up a whole world of flavour. All the richness and finesse of the Mumm vineyard is expressed in Cordon Rouge. In the late 19th century, this champagne was decorated with the famous red ribbon, as a tribute to the Légion d'Honneur. In their new finery, the bottles were presented to Mumms best customers. The decoration became the hallmark of one of the worlds most renowned champagnes, Mumm Cordon Rouge! The robe: a fresh golden yellow with jade tinges, an elegant stream of bubbles rising to form a rich, lively foam. The nose: developing aromas of lemon and grapefruit, with notes of white peach, apricot and acidulous apple. Lingering notes of vanilla, dried fruit and honey. The flavour: complex fresh fruit and caramel flavours are the mark of a great wine. A touch of acidity and remarkable length in the mouth make a consistently delightful finish. 77 wines make up this reference champagne. Well-structured, tonic, elegant and long Cordon Rouge sums up the spirit, know-how and dynamism of the Mumm champagne house Pinot Noir (45%), rounded and full, structures this blend with strength and power. Pinot Meunier (25%) provides the fruitiness, liveliness and a rustic feel. Chardonnay (30%) gives this champagne all its finesse and elegance. Alcohol: 12.5% Bottle Pressure: 6kg at 10C Sugar per litre: 10 grams.
