Mumm Cordon Rouge NV

mumm cordon rougeMumm (pronounced on the short side of mewm, not “mum” as many say it) is on the gentle side of the spectrum. It’s just sly of dry, seeming to have a higher dosage than many of the other big names. The acid is a little lacking for moi – but with Champagne, many would say this is a personal preference – some simply can’t drink the steelier styles and would love this. Fruit flavours are relatively simple – a little yellow peach and dried pear, and there is the trademark Champagne marmite character also shining through. Quite golden in colour, and showing some nice honeyed development, but in my opinion, not the best at the price point.
