G.H. Mumm Brut Rosé NV

Cuvee: Brut Nature
Vintage: Multi-Vintage

G.H. Mumm Rosé can be described as masculine in style, combining the fruit and finesse of Cordon Rouge with the extra power of more dominant Pinot Noir.

People often think of rosé wines as light, however being made from red grapes means they are actually heavier than whites with more structure and depth.

The Blend

G.H. Mumm Rosé is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 22% Chardonnay, 18% Pinot Meunier, made with up to 14% red wines from the Montagne de Reims (heavier Pinots Noirs from Bouzy, Verzy, Ambonnay and Verzenay) and from a couple of crus in the Côte des Bars. Grapes are sourced from up to 77 different crus in total.

The final cuvée includes around 18% reserve wines, mostly Pinot Noir from three or more vintages. It is aged for three years on the lees before bottling.

Food Pairing

 

Rosés tend to have a bit more red fruit aroma and flavour than regular Champagne and a little richer and rounder.  G.H. Mumm Rosé NV Champagne goes very well with seafood, including prawns (grilled gambas with aioli) and lobster, rich smoked meat (duck) or fish (eel), pork (Chinese pork dumplings) and can also work with spicy foods, especially fruity curries from southern India.  G.H. Mumm Rosé is also good with canapés:  smoked salmon and crème fraiche blinis, smoked eel with horseradish, tandoori chicken skewers - and aromatic duck.
