GH Mumm is joining the Zoom party with the announcement of its upcoming virtual champagne tasting on September 10th. Hosted by Drinks With Dave – a business dedicated to virtual booze tastings – you’ll soon be given the chance to enjoy bottles of the iconic brand’s premium offerings while being guided by the experts.
This interactive experience will involve two of GH Mumm’s finest. First, we have the iconic Cordon Rouge NV: “the heartbeat of Maison Mumm” and a cuvée named after the famed red ribbon of the Legion d’Honneur – France’s highest civilian honour. Featuring a complex blend sourced from over 100 different crus, it has been aged for 20 months in the GH Mumm cellars.
And then there’s the exceptional 2012 Vintage of Maison Mumm: a drop known for its surprising roundness powered by peach and yellow pear (“… slowly revealing exotic hints of lychee tempered by explosive citrus notes”). Expect a subtle harmony between the power and fruit of Pinot Noir. As per Drinks With Dave, this is the product of mature vineyards from the best Grand Cru villages of the Montagne de Reims enhanced by a “touch” of old vine Chardonnay from Côte des Blancs.
The price of admission is $149 – which includes the virtual event itself, two 750ml bottles of champagne delivered to your door, exclusive access to videos, tasting notes, pairing recipes, as well as access to Dave’s Members Community, and more.
