This is the same size as the Mumm F1 Jeroboam bottle awarded to the winner of each Formula 1 Grand Prix.
Fresh, golden yellow colour with hints of jade, the wine’s abundant bubbles, both fine and elegant, demonstrate the finesse of this champagne.
On the nose aromas of lemon and grapefruit, combined with the richness of firm, fleshy fruits such as white peaches, apricots and tart apples bring freshness and liveliness to the wine. These are followed by hints of vanilla, enriched with caramel. Honeyed nuts also play their part.
The bubbles are rich on the palate, but never overpowering. The perfect balance is combined with a rounded, full vinosity. The mix of fresh fruit and caramel aromas give even more intensity to the finish. This is a subtly balanced wine with a remarkable capacity to linger in the mouth.
Dominated by a backbone of top quality Pinot Noir, this flagship cuvée is an assemblage of up to 77 different vineyards with a high proportion of reserve wines of up to five different vintages to create a fresh, yet rich and complex champagne. All the great terroirs of the Champagne region are represented in the blend: the Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne, Vallée de l'Ardes, Côte des Blancs, Sézannais, and Aube. Many of the wines behind the splendour of Cordon Rouge are sourced from Grands Crus and Premiers Crus within the Champagne region, classed at 90% to 100% on the Cru scale.

With a legacy of almost two centuries behind it – the House of G.H. MUMM, established in 1827, still aspires tothe original aims of the great Georges Hermann Mumm, one of the father fi gures of the House. His passion was to achieve the highest possible quality for G.H. MUMM champagnes: time after time he was heard to say “Only the Best”. In 1875, he decided to decorate each of his bottles with the prized Cordon Rouge or red sash of the Légion d’Honneur, the highest French civilian distinction, created by Napoleon I. Over and above the symbol of excellence that it represents, the Cordon Rouge embodies the true spirit that drives the House: the quest for perfection, a spirit of adventure and panache.
