Winemaker's Notes:

Opening with a brilliant golden-yellow hue and a gentle stream of tiny bubbles, the 2001 DVX is complex, rich and nicely balanced. Toasted brioche with a hint of oak spice greet you on the nose, followed by green apple, ripe peaches and fresh raspberry on the palate. A lovely vanilla creaminess on the mid palate ends with a lingering, refreshig finish. Overall, it balances complexity and power with an elegan finesse in the signature DVX style.

About Mumm Napa:

Mumm Napa draws from the rich heritage of Champagne Mumm of Reims, France while integrating a unique Napa Valley style to make internationally respected wines of excellent quality. Ludovic Dervin carries on the inspiration that began with Guy Devaux in making Mumm Napa wines, bringing the ripe character of Napa fruit to the forefront while maintaining the classic balance and structure necessary in an outstanding sparkling wine.
