"There's depth and complexity here, with cherry, spice, toast and mineral flavors matched to a rich texture. It's all supported by a firm structure, ending with a long aftertaste of spice and underbrush. Very vinous. Drink now through 2013." (WS)

"($55;L092800442): Bright salmon-skincolor. Pungent redcurrant andrhubarb on the nose, with a subtle floral quality that gains strength withair. Juicy and broad on entry,then tighter in the mid-palate, offering spicy red berry flavors and a touch ofanise. Dry and a bit edgy on thenicely precise, persistent finish." (IWC)

Winery Notes:
G.H. Mumm Rosé was launched in 1957 under the name Cordon Rosé. Leonard Foujita, a Japanese artist and friend of René Lalou, the company chairman, gave G.H. Mumm a fresco depicting “The Virgin in the Vines”. The rose featured in the painting became the cuvée’s emblem and appears on the metallic cap on top of the cork. With its balance of freshness and intensity, G.H. Mumm Rosé stays true to the house style. It’s made by the age-old Champagne tradition of mixing red wine of the region with white wines.
