Winemaker's Notes

Located in Reims, France, Champagne Mumm is a grande marque whose reputation has been built over the past 175 years by providing connoisseurs with Champagnes of distinction and elegance. Especially prepared to meet American demand, Mumm first released a demi-sec Champagne in 1888. Today, the celebrated Champagne House creates a new demi-sec named Joyesse which means "To exist in joy" and is intended to provide a transcending experience. Crafted by dynamic young Winemaker Dominique Demarville, each glass of Joyesse is infused with Mumm's long-standing passion for terroir, advanced winemaking techniques and a meticulous approach to blending.

The cuvée is a blend of 50% Pinot Meunier, 35% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay, of which one quarter are reserve wines. Pinot Meunier from Vallée de la Marne impart a fruitiness while the addition of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, as well as the reserve wines, contribute a pleasing complexity. At disgorgement, a special liqueur d' expedition of aged wines is infused with 44 grams of sugar per liter to add further complexity, smoothness and richness.

Joyesse opens with layers of smooth, honeyed, well-rounded flavors of ripe white pears, juicy plums, yellow peaches, finishing with candied ruby grapefruit. Joyesse can be enjoyed with a spicy Indian or Thai dish or with dessert such as a peach cobbler, apple tarte Tatin or a berry tartlet.
