Mumm Cordon Rouge possesses a brilliant yellow golden color. The bubbles are lively, intense, and light. The bouquet is fruity with initial notes of peaches, pears, and green apples followed by flavors of candied lemon and ripe apricots. The long cellar aging provides flavors of vanilla, roasted nuts and a hint of toast. On the palate this cuvée reveals a delicate freshness followed by the power and full-bodied character of the Pinot Noir. The finish is a combination of the lightness of the Chardonnay and the fruitiness of the Pinot Noir balanced by the roundness of the Pinot Meunier. The "témoigne" or long finish, is the result of the carefully chosen infusion of terroir and reserve wines.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Mumm Cordon Rouge is excellent when any occasion shared with friends becomes a celebration. However, the power and complexity of Cordon Rouge also makes it a perfect partner for delicate and distinctive food. Sauced fishes, grilled lamb and tender chicken all pair beautifully with Mumm Cordon Rouge. The predominance of the Pinot Noir makes for a good balance with dishes containing lighter mushrooms such as creamy champignon risotto.
Composition: 45 percent Pinot Noir
25 percent Pinot Meunier
30 percent Chardonnay
"Hands down, this is one of the best Champagnes I?ve enjoyed this year. It is fresh and crisp with wonderful, long lasting bubbles. Hey, that's what we like about Champagne anyway, right? I actually drank this with a bag of potato chips. Salty and acidic are perfect pairings. It can't get any better than that!"

Aromas and flavors of toast and mineral frame the citrus core in this elegant, focused bubbly. This is firm and lively, with a lingering finish. Drink now through 2014.
Mumm's new generation of Cordon Rouge bottlings is a pleasure. The wine has depth and great full swathes of pear and red apple fruit flavors. It is well integrated, with initial softness tightened up with acidity and yeast flavors.
