G.H. Mumm de Cramant Blanc de Blancs
In 1882, the House of G.H. Mumm acquired vines in Cramant, one of the finest growing areas on the Côte des Blancs. Its chalky soil lends itself to the cultivation of Chardonnay grapes so fine as to make a wine from a single grape variety. Born of a single variety and a single vineyard, for a long time the vintage was set aside for friends of the House. The name, the old-style bottle, the label with its folded corner... All these are reminders of this wine's special place in the history of the House of G.H. Mumm.
As the pure expression of a terroir distilled through the expertise of the House, this wine is distinctive in a multitude of ways. Made with a single grape variety from a single vineyard, it also perpetuates the Champagne’s “demi-mousse” tradition. This type of champagne possesses a delicate effervescence, because its pressure is lower than that of other champagnes. The low dosage (6g/l) is also attuned with the mineral purity of its character.
As was the custom in the past, this is a wine to be handed over in person and shared as a sign of friendship, for aperitif, around a seafood platter or a dish of sushi.
