As the Champagne des Souverains, so great was the fame of the Cordon Rouge wine that it became the symbol of the House and of champagne as a whole. The wine lovers of today continue to worship Mumm Cordon Rouge and have made the cuvée France’s premier and one of the world’s favourite champagnes.
Georges Hermann Mumm is the man to whom we owe the House’s iconic cuvée. In 1876, to assert the quality of its champagne, the House decided to adorn their bottles with a red silk ribbon, a reference to the Ordre de Saint Louis and to the Grand Cordon de la Légion d’Honneur. Its success was immediate: a symbol of Maison Mumm’s excellence and expertise, the Cordon Rouge cuvée henceforth became a true benchmark all over the world.
Mumm Cordon Rouge is ideal as an aperitif and beyond. It’s crafting is a long and complex process of which every step is fundamental to ensure the cuvée’s quality and perfection.
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. Taste an explosion of freshness in the mouth, followed by strong persistence. The complex aromas of fresh fruit and caramel perpetuate the intensity.
