G. H. Mumm
g.h. mumm grand cordon n.v. 750ml (glam edition)
Exuberant bubbles and a brilliant, golden color testify to the vibrancy of this champagne. Lush aromas of ripe peach, apricot and pineapple cascade from the glass, chased by hints of vanilla and caramel, yeast, dried fruit, and honey. Intense, complex flavors of fresh fruit and caramel that morph into a long, lingering finish.
Breaking with convention, the bottle has no front label: The G.H. Mumm signature and eagle emblem are printed in gold directly on the glass. Another striking feature of the design is its shape, which necessitated a whole series of innovations to the traditional champagne production process. Mumm Grand Cordon was created by award-winning designer Ross Lovegrove.
92 points - Decanter
"Fresh, clean, pure and sappy with an orchard fruit and gently yeasty nose and palate. Very pure, rather slender but intense with a long finish."
91 points - James Suckling
"Both fresh and generous, with butter and patisserie notes to the red berries and candied lemon. This has good depth and plenty of charm with frank but very harmonious acidity that's married to nice creaminess at the finish. More than one third Grand Cru and Premier Cru with 4 years of maturation. Drink now."
91 points - Wine Spectator
"Bright and graceful, with a lively bead and delicate flavors of Granny Smith apple, grated ginger and toast point. Lacy, citrus-laced finish."
90 points - Wine Enthusiast
"This Champagne is showing well. Touches of toast suggest bottle aging while the white fruits and flashes of citrus give freshness. This non vintage cuvÃ©e is ready to drink."
