Mumm Cordon Rouge NV Champagne

A champagne whose label perhaps doesn’t carry the cachet of others in the same price bracket that denotes quality. At £35 a bottle it should be good… Thankfully it was delicious – better than I expected.

Tasting notes: Biscuity, aromas of lemon and pastry. Notes of toast on the palate. This also had bite as it’s predominantly pinot noir. Elegant. Persistent, fine mousse. Delicious!

Wine Colour – White
Price – £35 Waitrose, widely available.
Current Vintage – NV
Producer – G H Mumm
Grape – Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier
Region/Country – Champagne, France

Verdict – Good champagne

Food Pairings – this worked brilliantly as a celebratory aperitif without food.
