Mumm de Cramant Blanc de Blancs Brut NV

Champagne, FranceFrom a single Grand Cru vineyard in Cramant that Mumm acquired in 1882, the house sees this wine an historically important expression, purposefully reflecting this tradition with a folded corner label to reflect the hand-afixxed labels of the past. It is also bottled with lower pressure (4.5 bars), as were Champagnes of 100+ years ago. A rare cuvée made since 1882, the Mumm De Cramant (nee Cremant de Cramant) has only been available for sale since 1960. White florals, green apple, and toast is laced with tight lemon acidity. Lively and exuberant, with ample spiciness and toast through to the tight lemon pith/peel finish. The Grand Cru weight and heft is evident, as is the creamy elegance of Cramant.Tasted: 02 February 2019Tasted by: Prices: US 78.00 Producer: Champagne G. H.
