Mumm Napa DVX Brut 2003
Vintage Sparkling Wine from Napa Valley, California
The 2003 vintage delivers a beautifully balanced wine with intense fruit characteristics.
This prestigious tête de cuvée honors the visionary work of Guy Devaux. Brilliant and clear, this vintage selection has a pale straw loveliness that opens with toasted almonds, honey and lemon zest. A complex finish lingers with tones of creamy yeast notes, clove, granny smith apples and a hint of apricot. We recommend enjoying with sautéed scallops over linguini, wild mushroom risotto, tuna saltimbocca or simply great company.
Wine Spectator - "Sleek and elegant, with apple blossom and spiced ginger aromas that lead to rich yet delicate flavors of baked pear and crème brûlée, mixed with crisp citrus. Finishes with a vibrant, mineral-laced acidity. Drink now through 2016. 1,000 cases made."
Wine Enthusiast - "A brut-style sparkler, at the age of eight years it’s still fresh and crisp, with yeasty flavors of limes, strawberries, vanilla and toast. Feels dry and austere despite a honeyed richness, just what you want in a great sparkling wine. Seems best over the next six years."

Notable FactsWithin the Napa Valley lie smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two is St.-Helena and finally, just grated an AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap and Mount Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
