Tasting Notes

The famous red stripe on the label has been around since 1876, putting this firmly in the category of Champagne classics.

A blend of over 70 different 'crus' with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, this is fresh with citrus fruits and a smooth, subtle toasty character.

A great aperitif.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 5 years

Background

History

G.H. MUMM has always held itself to the motto of Georges Hermann MUMM: “Only the best”. To assert the quality of its champagne, in 1876, an House agent, Welby Jourdan, had the ingenious idea of decorating the bottles with the famous red ribbon of the Legion of Honour. For some esteemed customers, a few bottles were decorated with a ribbon of genuine red silk, sealed with an oval label marked “Cordon Rouge”. It was an overnight success. The emblem became a rallying call for connoisseurs, who began ordering “a bottle of Cordon Rouge” instead of “a bottle of champagne”. The Cordon Rouge cuvée has become a symbol of the firm’s excellence and savoir faire throughout the world.

Regional info

Blended from 77 crus, each Cordon Rouge cuvée embodies all the nobility and diversity of the Champagne region’s vineyards. All the great Champagne terroirs are represented (Montagne de Reims, Marne and Ardre valleys, Côte des Blancs, Sézannais, Côte des Bars), and many of the wines used are Grands Crus or Premiers Crus. Pinot Noir, the grape variety traditionally used by G.H. MUMM, accounts for 45% of the blend, endowing the wine with a structure and strength that is enhanced with a Chardonnay blend (30%) that ensures both finesse and elegance. The fruity, sharp and well-rounded notes of Pinot Meunier (25%) complete the blend. The style of every G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge cuvée is a constant, subtle balance of freshness and intensity.
