In 1876, as a tribute to their most prestigious clients, Mumm decorated a few of their bottles with a cross red silk ribbon (a reference to the Legion of Honour) and sealed them with an oval label. The success of Cordon Rouge was established...
Presented in a beautiful and classy wooden box, because you are a prestigious client as well!

Mumm's workhorse label delivers strong Pinot Noir fruits on the nose, with some savoury chalky and yeasty complexity. The palate is bold and forthright in both flavour and structure, delivering power and richness thanks to plenty of reserve wine, fleshy and assertive finish. Rating 91 - 1 Glass, Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide 2011
Aromas of lemon biscuit, grapefruit, smoke and mineral. On the palate light with a soda mineral character, sulphide, citrus and a slight caramel biscuit flavour too, which is very nice. No great depth but offers a certain fluffy dry white towel texture which makes it slip down nicely. Finishes dry and salty but not especially long. Solid NV. Rating 90 - Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (NOV/2008).
34% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir, 33% Pinot Meunier Lovely intensity of ripe apple, toasted brioche and lemon tart aromas with a waft of red berries. Crisp acidity, a little lacking in concentration on the mid-palate. Some chalkiness. Long finish. Elegant. Rating 88 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Mar/2010)
The NV Brut Cordon Rouge opens with attractive, open aromatics that suggest a level of ripeness that doesn't quite come through on the palate. Still, this fresh, perfumed Champagne is a solid effort in its price range. Peaches, apricots and flowers and complexity on the finish. Rating 87 - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate # 186 (Dec/2009)
Light gold. Expressive nose mingling a fruity note with a slightly toasted biscuity touch. Supple, melted attack, small bubbles, long-lasting freshness. A classic-style, well-made dry sparkler. Rating 86 - Gilbert & Gaillard (MAR/2010).
