G. H. Mumm Champagne

G. H. Mumm Champagne

With a legacy of almost two centuries, the Champagne house of G.H. Mumm was established in 1827, and it still aspires to the 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 of G.H. Mumm: the quest for perfection, a spirit of adventure and panache.

Mumm today is one of the largest Champagne producers worldwide, famous for its Cordon Rouge.

G.H. Mumm has been an official sponsor of Formula 1 motorsport since 2000, providing the Champagne bottles for the podium celebrations after each race.

The iconic Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut is Pinot Noir dominated, blended with around 30% of Chardonnay. Around 25% of library vintages add depth and complexity to this non-vintage cuvee.

For us, our favourite cuvee of G.H. Mumm is the Blanc De Blancs Mumm De Cramant, originally known as Cremant De Cramant, for this wine is bottled at just 4 atmospheres of pressure rather than Champagne's usual 6 atmospheres. It is an expression of pure Chardonnay, grown in the Grand Cru village of Cramant in the Cotes des Blancs and bottled after only two years on its lees. It's the very epitome of elegance.
