Appearance this champagne is a brightly sparkling light golden yellow liquid with an abundance of fine and elegant bubbles. Fragrance the nose reveals initial aromas of ripe fresh fruit (white and yellow peaches apricots) tropical notes (lychee and pineapple).

Mumm cordon rouge ideal as an aperitif and beyond crafting is a long and complex process of which every step is fundamental to ensure the cuvee’s quality and perfection.

The success of cordon rouge was established… As the champagne des souverains so great was the fame of the cordon rouge wine that it became the symbol of the house and of champagne as a whole. The wine lovers of today continue to worship mumm cordon rouge and have made the cuvee france’s premier and one of the world’s favourite champagnes. Georges hermann mumm is the man to whom we owe the house’s iconic cuvee. In 1876 to assert the quality of its champagne the house decided to adorn their bottles with a red silk ribbon a reference to the ordre de saint louis and to the grand cordon de la legion d’honneur. Its success was immediate: a symbol of maison mumm’s excellence and expertise the cordon rouge cuvee henceforth became a true benchmark all over the world. ”the house’s signature cuvee : it perpetuates a hallmark style of subtly balanced freshness and intensity” – didier mariotti cellar master mumm and ross lovegrove: when elegance fires creativity in keeping with the history of cordon rouge sabrage – a traditional ritual borrowed from napoleon’s armies never fails to make a great impression notably on special occasions. By entrusting the internationally renowned designer ross lovegrove with the task of creating a sabre mumm has brought a modern touch to this great tradition. A gamble that has paid off handsomely combining two worlds: that of a champagne house constantly looking to innovate and that of a designer recognised as a leader of 21st-century aesthetics. The designer was determined to respond to the bold multi-sensorial and culturally-enriching act that is sabrage in a way that was natural highly personal and imbued with his attraction for the cult of the object”.” – g.
