By adopting a bottle with a resolutely refined design, Mumm Grand Cordon achieves a significant innovation. It is the designer Ross Lovegrove, already solicited by the House of Champagne Mumm for his ability to combine new technologies and material science, who signs the design of this bottle.
The inlay of the Cordon Rouge like a ribbon of glass is a real technological feat and an innovation for the traditional Champagne bottle. The shape of the bottle also accompanies the process of wine development. Ross Lovegrove and Didier Mariotti had a dialogue, each requesting the know-how required in the development of a cuvée, from the managers of the vineyards to the vatters, including oenologists, wine merchants and stirrers. These fruitful discussions gave birth to this bottle with such a special shape.
Colour: Limpid and brilliant color of gold
Nose: Mumm Grand Cordon cuvée reveals aromas of summer fruits on the nose, punctuated by aromas of lychee and pineapple which open with notes of vanilla, dried fruits and honey.
Palate: With a lively freshness and a beautiful persistence, this complexity continues in the mouth in a perfect balance, before blooming on a very round finish.
History of G.H.Mumm
Maison de Champagne Mumm: so much champagne since 1827. Mumm champagnes are the alliance of excellence and elegance. At the origin of the Maison Mumm tradition, there is a man, George Hermann Mumm. This visionary, whose motto was “”only the best””, understood very early on the importance of acquiring the rarest plots of Champagne to guarantee the quality of his cuvées. His stroke of genius remains the creation of the famous Cordon Rouge champagne cuvée in 1876. This exceptional cuvée was invited to the most prestigious tables in the world to become the “champagne of the Sovereigns”.
Still, Maison Mumm is the official champagne of the royal court of England. Rich in a unique terroir made up of 218 hectares, 160 of which are classified Grands Crus, Maison Mumm is distinguished by an intimate knowledge of the vines and a mastery of the blend which allows to obtain champagnes of constant quality and faithful to the unique style of the House, between freshness and intensity.
Two centuries of passion and high standards have made Mumm a benchmark House, one of the largest Champagne Houses in the world.
