Cordon Rouge

The History: behind the red silk ribbon

The man who would eventually give his initials to the House is also the man to whom we owe its iconic cuvée. As a winemaker, Georges Hermann Mumm was driven by a single motto: "only the best". In 1876, in tribute to the wine on which the reputation of the House is founded, he decided to ornament the bottle with a red silk ribbon, a symbol of the highest of French honours, the Ordre Royal et Militaire de Saint Louis then the Grand Cordon de la Légion d'Honneur.
As the Champagne des Souverains, so great was the fame of the Cordon Rouge wine that it became the symbol of the House and of champagne as a whole.
The wine lovers of today continue to worship G.H.MUMM Cordon Rouge and have made the cuvée France's premier and one of the world's favourite champagnes.

The Elaboration

Didier Mariotti and his team of wine experts are responsible for perpetuating, year after year, the House signature. This demands long experience and a certain degree of talent! They have no less than 77 grape varieties to choose from, each unique. The distinctiveness of the G.H.MUMM vineyard is reflected in the final blend: a predominance of Pinot Noir, a strong presence of Chardonnay and a touch of Pinot Meunier. To complete the union and ensure stylistic consistency, the Cellar Master adds 25% to 30% of reserve wine which brings additional complexity and depth to the final blend. After several years ageing, the light balanced dosage of G.H.MUMM expresses the identity of the cuvée, embodying both the character of the Champagne terroir and the talent of the winemaker.

The style: over to the Cellar Master

“The signature cuvée demands that its style, a subtle balance of freshness and intensity, be perpetuated”.
