Country: France, Champagne
Tasting Notes: This champagne is a brightly sparkling, light golden yellow liquid with an abundance of fine and elegant bubbles. The nose reveals initial aromas of ripe fresh fruit (white and yellow peaches, apricots), tropical notes (lychee and pineapple). It then opens up with the fragrance of vanilla before developing notes of milky caramel, breadcrumbs and yeast, culminating in aromas of dried fruit and honey. An explosion of freshness in the mouth, followed by strong persistence. The complex aromas of fresh fruit and caramel perpetuate the intensity.
Varietal: Blend of Pinot Noir (45%), Chardonnay blend (30%), Pinot Meunier (25%)
Pairing: Ideal as an aperitif and beyond, Mumm Cordon Rouge works as well as an accompaniment to white meat, as it does to fish or fine cured meats (Italian ham, smoked duck breast).
