GH Mumm and Co launched their now famous Cordon Rouge in 1876 and haven't looked back. By 1902 they were exporting a million bottles of Champagne to the United States alone. Unlike the majority of Champagne houses, Mumm was confiscated during the First World War as the Mumms refused to seek naturalisation. Their house style has consistantly been light, fresh and easy going.

Didier Mariotti and his team of wine experts are responsible for perpetuating, year after year, the House signature. This demands long experience and a certain degree of talent! The distinctiveness of the G.H.MUMM vineyard is reflected in the final blend: a predominance of Pinot Noir, a strong presence of Chardonnay and a touch of Pinot Meunier. To complete the union and ensure stylistic consistency, the Cellar Master adds 25% to 30% of reserve wine which brings additional complexity and depth to the final blend. After several years ageing, the light balanced dosage of G.H.MUMM expresses the identity of the cuvée, embodying both the character of the Champagne terroir and the talent of the winemaker. – Mumm.com
