Winemaker Notes

The 2008 DVX Extended Tirage has amazingly fresh fruit tones for an 8 year old wine; including orange, tangerine citrus, toasted bread, warm brioche, raspberry coulis, and quince aromas. On the palate the wine has a round and creamy mouthfeel, with smooth notes of fresh fig, feijoa, granny smith apple, and a lingering finish of fresh almond nuts. It exhibits a crisp and refreshing acidityfrom beginning to finish.

Perfect on its own as an evening starter, it is also an excellent accompaniment to wild mushroomvol-au-vent, creamy Parmesan risotto or lobster mac andcheese. Share this delicious wine with someone you love tocelebrate a special evening.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
A stunning blend of half Chardonnay and half Pinot Noir, made in a méthode traditionelle, this is a dry, minerally and incredibly smooth sparkling wine. Elegant and refined, it offers a tightly drawn curtain of mousse that lingers on the palate. The time in bottle has added complexity and sophistication, making the wine enjoyable now or for several more years.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
An open bubbly, akin to Champagne, this wine is pure, luxurious California all the way. Aromas of lemon curd and spiced hazelnut lead to layered flavors of Asian pear and toasted cinnamon. Drink now.

Mumm Napa, Napa Valley, California
Image of winery

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.

Napa Valley

View all wine

One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism, the Napa Valley was responsible for bringing worldwide recognition to California winemaking. In the 1960s, a few key wine families settled the area and hedged their bets on the valley's world-class winemaking potential—and they were right.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980s, when producers scooped up vineyard lands and planted vines throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, and today Napa is home to hundreds of producers ranging from boutique to corporate. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Napa whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that claim specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil. Farthest south and coolest from the influence of the San Pablo Bay is Carneros, followed by Coombsville to its northeast and then Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford. Above those are the warm St. Helena and the valley's newest and hottest AVA, Calistoga. These areas follow the valley floor and are known generally for creating rich, dense, complex and smooth reds with good aging potential. The mountain sub appellations, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs, include Stags Leap District, Atlas Peak, Chiles Valley (farther east), Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain District and Diamond Mountain District. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from a lot of time in the bottle to evolve and soften.

Champagne & Sparkling

View all wine

Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
