G.H. Mumm champagne is the result of a process that requires the greatest experience and attention during all stages, from the cultivation of the vine to the bottling. Storage and preparation for tasting require respecting certain principles which will help to savor champagne in all its splendor.
Mumm Champagne Tasting advice
Champagne can be tasted at any time. From aperitif to digestive, it also goes very well throughout the meal. To follow an order, it is best to start with a brut and end with a special cuvée interspersed with a vintage in the middle of the meal.
G.H. Mumm champagne should be served chilled - between 7 ° and 9 ° C. It is at this temperature that all the aromas can develop. To reach this ideal temperature, prepare a bucket of water filled with ice cubes in which you will slip the bottle 30 to 40 minutes before opening. Above all, never put a bottle of champagne in the freezer, but you can possibly place it in the refrigerator section for a few hours.
The flute is ultimately not the best container to let a champagne flourish. A glass of adequate height and width will allow the aromas to emerge, as well as the bubbles to unfold.
An ideal glass for drinking champagne is more like a large wine glass, rather than the cup used in most cases. On the subject of bubbles, these are the microscopic dust that traps tiny air bubbles. Use very clean glasses to let the bubbles escape naturally without too much force.
