Mumm Demi Sec Champagne
The colour of golden yellow with amber highlights is enhanced by vivacious, intense streams of bubbles. The fruity, rich and intense nose offers aromas of soft peach, pear and tropical fruit, with hints of honey and vanilla.
The delightful roundness of the attack persists through the sweet and fruity mid palate to the finish.
The defining moment during the production of Mumm Demi-Sec is the addition of the dosage liquor after disgorgement. A mixture of cane sugar and old champagne wines, the liquor creates the final style of the champagne: semi-sweet, unctuous and fruity with a residual sugar level of 44 g/l. Mumm Demi-Sec is left to mature for at least six months after disgorgement before shipping to ensure that the sugar and wine are perfectly balanced and in harmony.
Its warmth, sweet flavour and all-round generosity make Mumm Demi-Sec the perfect accompaniment for desserts such as fruit salad or tarte tatin, particularly when drunk in its youthful prime.
35% Pinot Noir, 55% Pinot Meunier, 10% Chardonnay

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 figures 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.
Pinot Meunier plays a very important role in the blending of Mumm Demi-Sec because of the round fruitiness and intensity it adds to the combination of charm and depth of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Between 20% and 25% reserve wines, mostly Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, bring honeyed flavours and a certain maturity to the final cuvée.
