Grand Cru Champagne
The full character and personality
of the Mumm vineyard are expressed in the Grand Cru.
Located in the heart of the prestigious Champagne wine
growing area, Mumm has used its ancestral expertise
to select and blend the rarest and most famous crus.
Of the 302 crus in this outstanding wine-growing area,
43 are Premier Crus, but only 17 are classified Grand
Crus, indicating the very finest cuvées. Of these
17, Mumm has selected the best five, which have always
been the basis of its blends.
Robe: a clear, lively yellow, with
rich, fine bubbles, evenly-spread effervescence and
a generous, light foam.
Bouquet: the first note is rich and harmonious, followed
by a delicate hint of white flowers, vanilla, honey
and white fruit. The subtle presence of toasted nuts
testifies to its slow maturation.
Flavour: when first tasted, the power and character
of Mumm Grand Cru delight the palate. Then it develops
freshness, roundness and suppleness, with lingering
sweet, fine flavours.
Mumm Grand Cru is a delicate blend of five major Grands
Crus (100%), comprised of 58% Pinot Noir from Bouzy,
Verzenay and Ay and 42% Chardonnay from Avize and Cramant.
