The man who finally gives his initial to the house is also the man to whom we can owe the iconic Cuvée. "Only the best" was the single motto that drove winemaker Georges Hermann Mumm. In 1876, as a tribute to wine, Mumm decided to take a red silk ribbon as an ornament for the bottle. It serves as a symbol for the highest French honors, the royal "Ordre et Militaire de Saint Louis" and for the "Grand Cordon de la Légion d'Honneur". As the champagne was for the sovereign, so great was the fame of the Cordon Rouge wine, so that it became the symbol of the house and the champagne as a whole. Tasting notes:Pale pink with orange reflections in the glass. In the nose aromas of wild berries, pink grapefruit, notes of strawberries, crisps and currants spread. A delicate scent of caramel and vanilla emerges. On the palate lively, dynamic with freshness, elegance and very subtle. Grape varieties: 60% Pinot Noir, 18% Pinot Meunier, 22% Chardonnay. Residual sugar: 6 g/l. Serving temperature: 6-8 °C. This Mumm is excellent with fruit desserts, biscuits and as an aperitif. It can also be enjoyed with smoked salmon and ham.
