G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut 法國夢紅帶香檳
The NV Brut Cordon Rouge opens with attractive, open aromatics that suggest a level of ripeness that doesn’t quite come through on the palate. Still, this fresh, perfumed Champagne is a solid effort in its price range. Peaches, apricots and flowers and complexity on the finish. This is Lot: 1338 L1390907471, no disgorgement date provided. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011.
This is a mixed set of new releases from Mumm. While the NV Brut Cordon Rouge and NV Brut Chardonnay Grand Cru Mumm de Cramant are both delicious, I found the 1998 Brut Cuvee Prestige Cuvee R. Lalou completely dominated by oak and the NV Brut Rose unexciting.
