Designer Ross Lovegrove has reinterpreted the cuvée, symbol of the Maison’s distinctive style.
A unique design that combines an avant-garde aesthetic with ecological sustainability
In a reaffirmation of its pioneering and innovating spirit, Maison Mumm is distributing its G.H. MUMM GRAND CORDON cuvée in a new type of bottle that the internationally acclaimed and visionary Welsh designer Ross Lovegrove has re-imagined with a view to sustainability.
The revolutionary bottle, made of recycled glass, is one of the lightest in the world, weighing a mere 835 grams
Stylish and avant-garde with a distinctive streamlined shape, the bottle exemplifies the principle that artistic form should follow function.
No label: the logo and the golden trademark are hot-stamped directly onto the glass.
The unmistakable Cordon Rouge, the iconic red ribbon of the Maison, is etched across the bottle to betoken the bracing and intensely flavourful impact of Pinot noir, the signature grape variety of G.H. MUMMchampagne.
The long slender neck not only adds to the elegance of the bottle as an object, but also serves as a conduit through which the champaign releases its bouquet.
Scrupulously attentive to the need for quality in every detail, the Maison has opted to seal the bottles with Mitik Diam stoppers which, among their other benefits, prevent the unpleasant phenomenon of corking.
An interesting factual detail
Maison Mumm is deeply committed to environmental sustainability, which also entails the rationalization of its processes. Accordingly, it has invented a new system of remuage to suit the new form and content of its G.H. Mumm Grand Cordon cuvée.
Discovering G.H. Mumm Grand Cordon: a finely balanced combination of freshness and intensity that enchants the palate
Aged for a minimum of 30 months, the champaign is 30% composed of reserve wines from five different vintages.
The result is an intense and bracing wine that is never mundane.
What gives Mumm Grand Cordon its character is Pinot noir, the Maison’s signature grape variety. Representing 45% of the assemblage, the Pinot noir is an invigorating source of strength and structure that counterpoises the freshness and elegance of the Chardonnay (30%). The assemblage also includes Pinot Meunier grapes (25%), which introduce soft and fruity notes, as well as a selection of reserve wines from five different vintages to guarantee consistency of style.
The bright straw-yellow hue and the fine strands of bubbles epitomize the elegance and dynamism of fine champagne. To the nose, Mumm Grand Cordon presents a bouquet of yellow tropical fruits, with strong notes of pineapple and hints of vanilla and caramel. The complexity of the wine is to be found in the contrast between its full-bodied mouthfeel and its incisive freshness. The finish is long but never harsh.
G.H. Mumm Grand Cordon Rosé, a seductively vivacious, bracing and fresh wine.
G.H. Mumm Grand Cordon Rosé derives its strength and structure from the Pinot noir-based red wines of Bouzy, Verzenay and Les Riceys. The essence of its character is to be found here, where the elegance of the Chardonnay is blended with the fruity roundness of the Pinot Meunier to create a balanced palate.
The vivacious, fine and enduring bubbles vivify the sunset-toned nectar that is G.H. Mumm Grand Cordon Rosé.
Notes of candied berries and tones of spiciness are expressive of the passion that is embodied in this cuvée and make it so appealing. Elegantly structured, it delivers flavours of fragrant summer fruits followed by a long, bright finish.
A champagne with a complex profile, G.H Mumm Grand Cordon Rosé, conceived as an accompaniment to meals, is also perfect for adventurous dishes such as gourmet pizza or Asian cuisine. As an aperitif, it is sublime.
