Description

2006 was a complex vintage which, in spite of some difficult climatic conditions, produced an abundant harvest of superb quality.

A dozen or so different crus classified Grands Crus and Premiers Crus make up the Brut Millésime 2006 blend, which is majority Pinot Noir, the historic grape variety of this champagne house.

Grown for the most part in the region of the Montagne de Reims, the grapes from the villages of Verzy, Verzenay, Mailly contribute power and opulence whilst the grapes from Bouzy and Ambonnay offer rich red fruit aromas.

Other Pinots Noirs complete the blend, in particular those from Avenay in the Marne valley.

In total Pinot Noir represents 64% of the blend for a solid architecture to which is added the elegance and the finesse of Chardonnay from the noble terroirs of Avize and Cramant (36%).

This champagne is cellar aged for almost five years and Mumm have chosen a low dosage (6g/L) to allow the grapes maximum expression.

The nose is refined and discreet with notes of yellow fruits and dried fruit.

The palate is generous and expansive with its silky texture and clean finish ending on toasted notes.
