To the eye, Mumm De Cramant Blanc de Blancs appears luminous, pale yellow with hints of green. Light, delicate bubbles create a fine, creamy mousse.

It has the aroma of white flowers, fresh fruit and lemon mingled with fresh and elegant notes.

Fresh and elegant on the palate, Cramant boasts crisp lime, lemon and grapefruit flavours with 'meltin-the-mouth' bubbles. The finish is graceful and lingering.

In 1882, the House of G.H.MUMM acquired vines in Cramant, one of the finest growing areas on the Cote des Blancs. Its chalky soil lends itself to the cultivation of Chardonnay grapes so fine as to make a wine from a single grape variety. Born of a single variety and a single vineyard, for a long time the vintage was set aside for friends of the House. In keeping with the etiquette of the time, it was handed over in person , accompanied by a carefully folded visiting card.

The name, the old-style bottle, the label with its folded corner ... All these are reminders of this wine's special place in the history of the House of G.H.Mumm.

As the pure expression of a terroir distilled through the expertise of the House, this wine is distinctive in a multitude of ways. Made with a single grape variety from a single vineyard, it also perpetuates the Champagne's 'demi-mousse' tradition. This type of champagne possesses a delicate effervescence, because its pressure is lower than that of other champagnes (4.5 bar). The low dosage (6g/l) is also attuned with the mineral purity of its character.

Producer Information

Mumm, Bubbly Since 1827.
The Mumm brothers, Jacobus, Gottlieb and Philipp, who were from a rich family of German wine merchants and who also owned vineyards in the Rhine valley, arrived in Reims in 1827. Along with their business partner Friedrich Giesler, they set up P.A. Mumm et Cie., the initials standing for the forenames of their father, Peter Arnold Mumm. 1853 was the Birth of G.H. Mumm et Cie and was a descendant of the founders, took over the company in 1853. It became and has remained to this day G.H. MUMM et Cie.
The first street address of the Maison Mumm was very appropriate: 14 Rue de la Grosse Bouteille, now Rue de Mars.
Mumm quickly established it's reputation thanks to its style and quality.
The emblem of Mumm was the famous Cordon Rouge.
Introduced in 1875, the Mumm emblem echoes the red ribbon of the Legion d'Honneur,
In 1881 Cordon Rouge became the first champagne to arrive in the USA, inaugurating an export-oriented sales policy that has continued successfully ever since.
In 1882, Mumm began to build up its own vineyard estates to ensure a constant supply of the best grapes from the best soils. The first purchases were of sixty hectares (148 acres) in the Cote des Blancs, the commune of Cramant and at Avize.
Mumm then installed seven traditional wooden wine presses in their vineyards. They are still in use today to ensure the continued quality of production.
As early as 1890, Mumm was enjoyed in all the royal courts of Europe.
The courts of Austria-Hungary, Belgium, the Netherlands, Prussia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and England, not to mention the Grand Dukes of Oldenburg and Hesse-Darmstadt, all appear in the Mumm accounts books of the 1890s. In 1902 Mumm was the leading Champagne house, selling 3 million bottles, of which one million went to the USA. In 1955, G.H. Mumm & Cie took on a world-wide dimension with the arrival of the Canadian group Seagram.
In 1999, Seagram sold Mumm to the American company Hicks, Muse, Tate & Furst.
Then, the English group Allied Domecq (world no.2 in wines and spirits) purchased Mumm, thereby adding a prestigious house to the major brands they already owned.
Today Champagne Mumm is present in over 100 countries.
40% of its production is sold in France, and 60% in export markets.
Its energetic marketing strategy resulted in sales of close on 8 million bottles around the world during 2000.
