Overview

Known as the “Royal Rose”, Mumm’s Le Rosé is a tribute to the elegant Royal Courts of Europe and the inimitable style of the House.

Mumm's very first rosé champagne was made in the 1860s and was called "Royal Rosé". A century later, Mumm Rosé adopted a now-famous design: a rose, painted in watercolour by the great Japanese artist and friend of the House, Léonard Foujita.

Like Mumm Cordon Rouge, the Mumm Rosé cuvée is blended from 77 crus

  • Including some red wine (between 12% and 14%), mainly Grands Crus or Premiers Crus, selected from villages known for their excellent Pinot Noir production, including Bouzy, Verzenay and Les Riceys
  • Pinot Noir is the dominant grape variety (60%), endowing the champagne with its strength, personality and colour
  • Pinot Meunier (18%) gives it a fruity vivacity and balance, and Chardonnay (22%) unveils its finesse and elegance
  • The final sugar content, at 6g/l, delivers a brut champagne that is fresh, intense and well-balanced

Winery Tasting Notes

Appearance

This champagne has a relatively pale salmon pink colour with light orange highlights and abundant bubbles that explode to create a fine and lively head.

Aroma

Amid aromas of fruits of the forest and pink grapefruit, individual hints of strawberry, cherry and redcurrant dominate and expand into delicate scents of caramelised vanilla, revealing the subtle presence of Mumm Cordon Rouge.

Palate

A lively, dynamic attack reminiscent of fruits of the forest, and a freshness that is elegant, fine and subtle.

Food Matching

Although traditionally served with red fruit desserts or pink biscuits of Reims, this delicious champagne is particularly enjoyable served chilled as an aperitif. It is a brut wine that can be enjoyed throughout the meal.

Mumm's champagne rituals introduce 21st-century devotees to new ways of enjoying champagne. This cuvée is a perfect accompaniment to smoked salmon, taramasalata and high-quality ham. Mumm Rosé is served between 6°C-8°C.

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".
