Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Color
An intense, clear-cut salmon pink color, with orange and yellow highlights. The light, elegant bubbles create a delicate, sparkling mousse.

Nose
Luscious aromas are dominated by fresh summer fruits such as strawberry with hints of caramel and vanilla.

Palate
The palate is filled with flavours of red fruits, caramel and vanilla and a long, powerful, rounded finish.

About G.H. Mumm:

Mumm was founded in 1827, and its well-known Cordon Rouge was launched by 1875, decorated with the now-famous red ribbon of the Legion of Honor. The firm owns 540 acres of vineyards throughout the Champagne region, and is the largest company in Reims. Since its founding, the house of Mumm has been regarded as one of the most famous names in Champagne. Its Champagnes are crafted from a palette of prestigious crus with varied flavors that offer each cuvée finesse, elegance and freshness. 80% of production undergoes remuage in gyropalettes, but the cuveés de prestige are still handled manually. Mumm is the second-largest selling Champagne in the United States.
