Wine Review: This straw colored Champagne opens with a fragrant wet stone and bread dough bouquet with a hint of lemon and almond. On the palate, this wine is crisp, acidic and fresh. The flavor profile is a mineral infused lime with hints of white pepper, tangerine and Anjou pear. The finish is dry, refreshing and lingers nicely. This Champagne would be a nice opening aperitif served with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The distinctiveness of the G.H.Mumm vineyard is reflected in the final blend: a predominance of Pinot Noir, a strong presence of Chardonnay and a touch of Pinot Meunier. To complete the union and ensure stylistic consistency, the Cellar Master adds 25% to 30% of reserve wine which brings additional complexity and depth to the final blend. After several years ageing, the light balanced dosage of G.H.Mumm expresses the identity of the cuvee, embodying both the character of the Champagne terroir and the talent of the winemaker.
