Among all the major Champagne producers belonging to the famous Pernod-Ricard group, one of the biggest names that comes to mind is Mumm. Mumm is the third largest producer behind Moet & Chandon and Veuve Clicquot. It has a long history and reputation of producing the world’s most consistent non-vintage Champagne. The Cordon Rouge (which means red ribbon) label, in particular, is made up of 30% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, and 25% Pinot Meunier. This trademarked proportion is what gives this Champagne a definite complexity that’s consistently rounded and balanced. No wonder the makers of this Champagne “knighted” their Champagne with the Cordon Rouge, fashioned after the French Grand Cordon of the Légion d’Honneur!
It’s not a coincidence then, that Mumm Champagne has become an essential to any celebration anytime and anywhere in the world. You may be amused to know that Mumm has been the official Formula One sponsor since 2000, providing the Champagne bottles for podium celebration after the races.
