Mumm Napa DVX Brut 1998
Vintage Sparkling Wine from Napa Valley, California
As with all Mumm Cuvée Napa wines, the natural ripeness of the fruit is accentuated. In appearance the wine is pale yellow with hints of gold. Very fine bubbles rise to a persistent mousse. The aromas are elegant and complex with fresh fruit aromas of red apple, lemon, orange peel and berry. A layer of freshly baked bread melds pleasingly with the fruit. The creamy texture on the palate has hints of cherries and plums, complemented by cocoa and citrus. The finish is long with nuances of plum, dried apricots and butter. Overall, the "fine line" has been walked between the balance of richness and complexity and the creation of an elegant wine. The DVX has a solid backbone of tightly knit fruit supported by a refreshing acidity which will continue to develop in the years to come.
