A half of Pinot Noir, the balance in Chardonnay and Meunier, from Cramant, Avize, Oger, Vertus, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzenay, Verzy, Mailly, Vaudemange, Ecueil, Savigny, Avenay, Verneuil and Vandieres. Mumm's elegant stream of bubbles rises to form a rich, lively foam, the nose develops aromas of lemon and grapefruit, with notes of white peach, apricot and acidulous apple. Lovely intensity of toasted brioche and lemon tart aromas with a waft of red berries. Lingering notes of vanilla, dried fruit and honey. A touch of acidity and remarkable length before a delightful finish.
Everything is done to capture the excellence of terroir, 218 hectares, of which 160 are classified as Grand Crus. Each kept separate from picking until the must reaches the vats. The final assemblage is complemented by a component of reserves from the G.H. Mumm stocks to add maturity and richness. The wine is then bottled for secondary fermentation, followed by maturation under the G.H. Mumm cellars for at least three years before disgorgement and a complex liqueur de dosage.
