Mumm Grand Cordon
Breaking with the traditional codes of champagne, the new Mumm bottle was created in collaboration with avant-garde designer Ross Lovegrove. It reinterprets the iconic Mumm Cordon Rouge red sash, which dates back to 1876 and was inspired by the Légion d’Honneur, France’s highest civilian award, as a genuine red ribbon, which is laser cut into the glass bottle. Unique to the premium champagne industry, the bottle will not have a front label; instead, the Mumm signature is screened directly on the glass in gold lettering.
Epitome of the House’s signature style, Mumm Grand Cordon expresses all the nuances of the Pinot Noir grape variety from the Champagne region of France. They are sourced from more than 100 crus for a bold, rich wine that subtly balances the power and structure of Pinot Noir with the elegance and minerality of Chardonnay and the fruitiness of Meunier. A portion of the reserve wines in this cuvée are aged in oakvats bringing even greater aromatic complexity.
Toasting milestones, personal achievements or simply celebrating friendship with an improvised get-together, the exceptional fresh intensity of Mumm Grand Cordon champagne evokes the exhilaration of life’s most unforgettable moments.
Colour: A clear and bright golden yellow.
Nose: A bracing, expressive nose: notes of ripe peaches, apricots and pineapple cascade from the glass. The aromatic richness and complexity are underscored by touches of vanilla and pastry, dried fruits, yeast and honey.
Palate: Each sip of this structured, vinous champagne unleashes intense and complex flavors of fresh fruits, before morphing into a long finish that is both powerful and fresh.
