G. H. Mumm Brut Cordon Rouge NV

Champagne, FranceCorrect fresh nose with bright baked pear, citrus nose and bits of chalky minerality. Crisp mid-palate with more honey lees and stony elements but the finish is touch dry and coarse. This will be best served with richer-style appetizers. If you didn’t know late in the 19th century, the label was decorated with the Cordon Rouge as a tribute to the French Légion d’Honneur. Mumm adds 25 to 30% reserve wine stored in wood for to up four years. The complexity comes from the 77 crus that go into the 45/30/25 blend of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier.Tasted: 10 December 2015Tasted by: Prices: BC 57.99 BCLS BC 32.99 BCLS AB 60.00 fine wine boutiques SK 53.98 SLGA MB 64.00 ON 60.00 LCBO QC 60.00 NB 60.00 NS 64.00 YK 64.00 NF 66.98 NLC QC 135.00 1500 fine wine boutiques QC 63.00 Producer: Champagne G.
