The House of G.H. Mumm, established in 1827, still aspires to the original aims of Georges Hermann Mumm, one of the great patriarchs of Champagne. His passion was to achieve the highest possible quality. Cordon Rouge expresses all the subtle nuances of the Mumm vineyards. The perfect balance between structure and refinement, strength and finesse. And is there a story behind the red ribbon? In the late nineteenth century, Mumm was decorated with the famous Cordon Rouge, as a tribute to France's highest order, La Legion d'Honneur.
