Overview

2006 was notable for its hot weather, albeit occasionally punctuated by local climatic events of varying severity (spring frosts, hailstorms, summer rainfall and heatwaves). Nevertheless, despite these unusual conditions, nature showed its generous side by offering an abundant and high-quality grape harvest. Nature’s excesses remind us of the fragile balances that surround vineyard work up to harvest time.

Winery Tasting Notes

The best batches are carefully selected, vinified and aged separately. Only some ten crus deserve this special treatment: the very best villages of the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. Among them we find a predominance of Pinot Noir (64%) which marks the House’s style. Time is needed to reveal the fullness of nature’s bounty. Ageing on the lees is patiently continued for five years. When it was deemed to be ready, a low dosage of 6g/l was added to bring out the wine’s character without altering it. For all these reasons Mumm Millésimé is a wine for laying down, that can be kept in a cellar for some ten years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The history of G.H. Mumm Champagne details a century and a half of passion. The flagship of the House of G.H. Mumm, Cordon Rouge, has always been associated with situations which evoke Champagne – celebration, refinement, prestige and joie de vivre. Today GH Mumm is the third largest international Champagne House and exports to over 100 countries.

The first pages of the House of G.H.MUMM fabled winemaking history were written long before 1827, its official founding date. The Mumm family, whose lineage includes barons and knights, dates back to the twelfth century. Already in 1761, the family had launched a business as wine producers and merchants based in Cologne, Germany under the name "P. A. Mumm", after its owner Peter Arnold Mumm. The company owned large vineyards in the Rhine valley, where it created its own wines.

In the early years of the nineteenth century, Peter Arnold Mumm's three sons, Gottlieb, Jacobus and Philipp, recognised the sales potential of the outstanding sparkling wines produced in the Champagne region of France. As Germany and France enjoyed good relations at the time, the Mumm brothers made the bold decision to establish a new branch of the family company in the Champagne region, creating a branch office in Reims with the assistance of a local representative, G. Heuser.

From the outset, quality was the key watchword for the partners in this new entity formed in 1827, and it has remained so for all of their successors. This approach would be encapsulated in the motto penned by Georges Hermann Mumm: "Only the best".
