G. H. Mumm & Cie. Cordon Rosé
|Region||France, Champagne, Bouzy|
|Brand||G. H. Mumm & Cie.|
G.H.Mumm Cordon Rosé is an independent spirit. This brut rosé champagne challenges convention, a refreshing antidote to the floral and sweet fruit flavors of traditional rosé champagne. To complement the bold style of Pinot Noir, the blend has Chardonnay for elegance and minerality and Pinot Meunier for roundness and balance. The base for the rosé is made from distinctive and bold red Pinot Noir wines, sourced from some of Champagne's most prestigious villages.
Flavors of poached pear, candied lemon zest and biscuit, with a rich hint of roasted almond, ride the lively bead of this crisp, minerally Champagne. Drink now through 2018. 15,000 cases imported.
This most familiar of nonvintage Champagnes has been improving each year. While it retains enough dosage to be easily drinkable, its acidity and crisp texture allied to the citrus element make for a sophisticated, attractive wine. Drink this bottling now.
