    1 x Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut NV Champagne
    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.
    Mumm’s signature grape variety, Pinot Noir, defines the personality of Mumm Cordon Rouge. A complex blend sourced from over 100 different crus. 20 months ageing in the Maison’s cellars. 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. Abundant bubbles and a vibrant, yellow colour testify to this champagne’s energy and vigour!
    Silver Medal Winner at International Wine Challenge 2017, Bronze Medal Winner at International Wine Challenge 2016.

     

    1 x Piper Heidsieck "Essentiel" Cuvée Réservée
    Domaine Piper Heidsieck was founded in 1785 by Florens-Louis Heidsieck, with a desire to make a “wine that smiles”. Their first patron was Queen Marie Antoinette and today the revered Champagne house is known worldwide for its red label.
    The Champion non-vintage Champagne at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2017, Essentiel Cuvée Réservée is bright, with well-defined fruit and aromatic purity, showing notes of citrus and white fruits, crisp succulent grapes, fresh apple and fresh almond. Intense and lasting notes of nutty fruitcake on the finish.
    Awarded "Best Non-Vintage Brut" at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2017. Gold medals at the International Wine & Spirits Competition & Mundus Vini 2017.


    1 x Moët & Chandon Imperial
    Moët Impérial is the House’s iconic champagne. Created in 1869, it embodies Moët & Chandon’s unique style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity. 
    Created from more than 100 different wines, of which 20% to 30% are reserve wines specially selected to enhance its maturity, complexity and constancy, the assemblage reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grapes varietals.
    A sparkling bouquet. The vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit. The freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers. The elegance of blond notes (brioche, cereal, fresh nuts).
    Gold Medal Winner. Rated 91/100 by Wine Spectator, 90/100 by Wine Review Online.

     

    Variety Description

    Champagne

    Champagne is a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France following rules that demand secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to create carbonation. The primary grapes used in the production of Champagne are Pinot noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.

    Country Description

    France

    Practically all the most famous grape varieties used in the world's wines are French varieties, and wine is produced all throughout France. France is the second largest wine producer in the world after Italy. The wines produced range from expensive high-end wines sold internationally to more modest wines usually only seen within France. In many respects, French wines have more of a regional than a national identity, as evidenced by different grape varieties, production methods and different classification systems in the various regions. Some of the more famous wine regions in France include Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire, Chablis and the Rhône valley.

    Region Description

    Champagne

    The Champagne wine region is a historic province in the northeast of France. The area is best known for the production of the sparkling white wine that bears the region's name. The principal grapes grown in the region include Chardonnay, Pinot noir, and Pinot Meunier. Ancient oceans left behind chalk subsoil deposits when they receded 70 million years ago. Earthquakes that rocked the region over 10 million years ago pushed the marine sediments of belemnite fossils up to the surface to create the belemnite chalk terrain. The belemnite in the soil allows it to absorb heat from the sun and gradually release it during the night as well as providing good drainage. This soil contributes to the lightness and finesse that is characteristic of Champagne wine.
