- LEGENDARY G.H. MUMM CORDON ROUGE CHAMPAGNE
The robe’s golden-yellow hue, enlivened by a delicate stream of fine bubbles, extends a sparkling invitation to take a first sip. First impression: a sensation of freshness, with rounded, delectable notes. Juicy scents of succulent white and yellow fruits entice, with hints of lychee, pineapple, praline. Appetizing aromas of pastry – yeast, brioche – heighten the anticipation. Vibrant freshness and exuberant energy excite the palate. Complex and perfectly balanced, the wine reveals rounded, elegant flavors of fruit and caramel. The powerful finish is at once creamy and effervescent.

"Nutty, smoky, savoury - very much a pinot-driven style. There is a minerally dryness that lingers on the finish. A very good wine in its station. (75% pinot noir and meunier, 25% chardonnay. 30% reserve wine) "

Well I’m back on deck after an unscheduled bout of food poisoning that required four days of eating and drinking nothing. On the upside, I’ve had an impromptu five day detox and lost a few pounds, so there’s a little silver cloud floating above. Anyway, I digress (as Tacitus so used to like saying..the old devil), so I’ve opened up a few fizzy things to ease me back into the tasting schedule. I tasted this two years ago and the note from then pretty much stands unchanged. NV Champagne, as I always like to complain, is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you are going to get: so let’s hope when you pick one you get a fresh hazelnut swirl rather than a stale old strawberry cream…
Aromas of lemon biscuit, grapefruit, smoke and mineral. On the palate light with a soda mineral character, sulphide, citrus and a slight caramel biscuit flavour too, which is very nice. No great depth but offers a certain fluffy dry white towel texture which makes it slip down nicely. Finishes dry and salty but not especially long. Solid NV.
4.5/5 Stars Wine Enthusiast
Its acidity and crisp texture allied to the citrus element make for a sophisticated, attractive wine.
