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.

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.

Aromas and flavors of toast and mineral frame the citrus core in this elegant, focused bubbly. This is firm and lively, with a lingering finish. Drink now through 2014.

Light gold. Buttered apple and pear aromas, with hints of anise and brioche. Medium in weight, with a silky texture and sweet orchard fruit flavors framed by gentle acidity. Broad and rich on the finish, with a lingering note of sweet butter.

Aromen von Zitrone und Pampelmuse, verbunden mit der Fülle fleischiger Früchte wie Pfirsich, Aprikose und säuerlichem Apfel geben dem Wein seine Frische und sein Temperament. Der Champagner perlt kräftig im Gaumen, ist aber zu keinem Zeitpunkt aufdringlich. Perfekte Ausgewogenheit vereint sich mit rundem und vollem Geschmack. Die Vielfalt aus Aromen frischer Früchte und Karamell sorgt für noch mehr Intensität.

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.

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