With a legacy of almost two centuries behind it - the House of G.H. MUMM, established in 1827, still aspires to the original aims of the great Georges Hermann Mumm, one of the father figures of the House. His passion was to achieve the highest possible quality for G.H. MUMM champagnes: time after time he was heard to say “Only the Best”.
In 1875, he decided to decorate each of his bottles with the prized Cordon Rouge or red sash of the Légion d’Honneur, the highest French civilian distinction, created by Napoleon I. Over and above the symbol of excellence that it represents, the Cordon Rouge embodies the true spirit that drives the House: the quest for perfection, a spirit of adventure and panache.
Appearance: Prolific sparkle in a fresh, yellow gold with jade highlights.
Nose: Lemon and grapefruit citrus aromas combined with notes from fleshy fruits such as peach, apricot and green apple. In the glass, vanilla tones enriched with caramel and milk. Hints of dried fruit and honey.
Palate: Richly sparkling without overpowering the palate. Balanced and well-rounded. Complex aromas of fresh fruit and caramel point to the breadth of a great wine. Exceptionally long finish with just the right level of acidity.
