G.H. Mumm Rosé was launched in 1957 under the name Cordon Rosé. Leonard Foujita, a Japanese artist and friend of René Lalou, the company president, gave G.H. Mumm a fresco depicting "The Virgin in the Vines". The rose featured in the painting became the cuvée's emblem and appears on the metallic cap on top of the cork. With its balance of freshness and intensity, G.H. Mumm Rosé stays true to the house style. It's made by the age-old Champagne tradition of mixing red wine of the region with white wines.
An intense, clear-cut salmon pink color, with
orange and yellow highlights. The light, elegant
bubbles create a delicate, sparkling mousse.
Luscious aromas are dominated by fresh summer fruits such as strawberry with hints of caramel and vanilla.
The palate is filled with flavours of red fruits, caramel and vanilla and a long, powerful, rounded finish.
"Pale salmon; silky and fresh with raspberry and citrus; racy, juicy and balanced; lively and vibrant. "
"There's depth and complexity here, with cherry,
spice, toast and mineral flavors matched to a
rich texture. It’s all supported by a firm
structure, ending with a long aftertaste of spice
and underbrush. Very vinous."
"Toasty aromas of strawberry, orange zest, smoke and chalk. Juicy flavors of red berry, citrus and cream. Bushels of cherry in the finish. "
