Details

This wine is clean and subtle on the nose. Rich fleshy fruits in the mouth with toasted nuts and subtle yeasty overtones. It is fresh and balanced with a long, creamy finish. Good match for lighter foods, such as egg dishes (eggs benedict or cheese souffle), hard cheeses (comte, gruyere), risotto (particularly with a cream or mushroom based sauce) and light fish (poached lemon sole) and shellfish dishes (oysters or fresh crab). Cordon Rouge also goes really well with fish and chips (or tempura), as its acidity helps cut through the oiliness of the batter. G. H. Mumm Cordon Rouge NV will also work well with canapes like freshly baked cheese straws, chicken liver pate and caviar. The man who would eventually give his initials to the House is also the man to whom we owe its iconic cuvee. As a winemaker, Georges Hermann Mumm was driven by a single motto: "only the best". In 1876, in tribute to the wine on which the reputation of the House is founded, he decided to ornament the bottle with a red silk ribbon, a symbol of the highest of French honours, the Ordre Royal et Order de Saint Louis then the Grand Cordon de la Legion d'Honneur. As the Champagne des Souverains, so good 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 G. H. Mumm Cordon Rouge and have made the cuvee France's premier and one of the world's favourite champagnes.
