How Does One Define the Pure Pleasure of Drinking Champagne?
Experiencing Mumm Champagnes
An olfactory experiment
- Mumm Grand Cordon Rosé
Tasted in the regular Champagne glass, Mumm Grand Cordon Rosé has great freshness in the attack, after which it reveals its fruity nature. When tasted in the heavier, polished purple glass, however, it reveals an attractive depth and gourmet notes of red fruit (morello and amarena cherries) and Viennese pastry.
- Mumm Brut Millésimé 2013
The experiment was repeated with the Mumm Brut Millésimé 2013. The lighter, frosted glass with its textured surface, revealed a hidden freshness with delicate, lucid aromas that do not normally come to the fore with this cuvée. Tasted in the classic Mumm glass, however, this mature structured, and precise vintage cuvée offers gourmet pastry notes.
- RSRV Blanc de Noirs 2009
With the RSRV Blanc de Noirs 2009, a standard glass released all the wonderful qualities of a mature Pinot Noir from Verzenay: generosity, complexity, and aromas of ripe fruit. However, when tasted in the frosted glass, the wine revealed great freshness with aromas of citrus and candied peach.
