    Description

    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. Vinified separately, this Cuvée is made exclusively with wine from the 2006 harvest, and was already judged to be exceptional in November when the wines were first tasted. The year that produced it began with a relatively cold winter followed by a mild spring and a variable summer (a heatwave in July and a rainy month of August). The harvest was “saved” by the sun and wind in September which provided ideal conditions for the grapes to reach maturity. A vintage year brings to a style its own realm of complex and unique aromas and flavours.” - Didier Mariotti, Mumm Cellar Master

    Tasting Notes

    The nose reveals a superbly complex wine: notes of apple and pear, with yellow fruit such as apricot and mirabelle plum. It then develops aromas of dried fruit and nuts with hints of pastry. After a strong attack, the wine develops gradually. It then reveals the increasingly perceptible presence of Pinot Noir, giving an unctuousness to the structure before unfolding into a long, precise finish.

    Food Pairing

    Served with a starter, G.H.MUMM Millésimé 2006 goes well with a hot or cold vegetable or fish broth, or a citrus and shellfish salad. With a main course it enhances dishes from a wide variety of world cuisines: cold Japanese pasta with prawns, steamed white fish served with lemon confit or wrapped in dry-cured Italian ham.
