I don’t think anyone needs convincing that mothers deserve to be spoiled. And spoiled in style. So, my wine of the week is a fitting tribute to all the incredible women out there who deserve something a little bit special this Sunday!
Mumm Cordon Rouge is distinctively fresh, fruity and elegant so this is the perfect drink for celebrating.
Don’t trust me though, here’s what the experts say…
Flavour: fresh, bold, intense ripe fruits. Mumm’s signature grape variety, Pinot Noir, defines the personality of Mumm Cordon Rouge.
Background: Mumm Cordon Rouge champagne is the heartbeat of Maison Mumm. This cuvée is named after its famous red cordon: the red ribbon of the Legion d’Honneur, France’s highest civilian honour, which has adorned each bottle since 1876.
The look: Abundant bubbles and a vibrant, yellow colour testify to this champagne’s energy and vigour.
The aromas: Driven by Pinot Noir grape, Mumm Cordon Rouge Champagne reveals aromas of fresh white and yellow fruit with hints of lychee, pineapple and praline.
The taste: An energetic freshness, underscored with complexity is revealed. The palate is perfectly balanced with fresh fruit and rounded notes of caramel prolonging the intensity and leading to a powerful, memorable finish.
The price: About €45.
Mumm Cordon Rouge Champagne is widely available from the likes of O’Brien’s wines, Dunnes, Supervalu and Tesco.
Have a sparkling weekend! Oh and drink responsibly.
