Mumm Napa

Brut Rosé Blend

9.0

While Mumm occupies one of the most iconic sites in Champagne, Moulin de Verzenay, it’s just not popular in the U.S., so it’s easy to dismiss Mumm Napa as a cheap supermarket brand. Well I’m glad I tried this.

While this PN dominated Rose lacks the refinement of a Champagne, the abundance of fresh fruits such as cherry, strawberry, watermelon, grapefruit, and citrus make this a joy to drink. Crisp, energetic, and dry, this is so good for under $20.

Champagne Thienot x Penfolds

Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2012

At the Penfolds Californian Collection Dinner at the Downs Club on Monday night. This is their brand new French Champagne venture with Thienot - a vintage Cuvée from 2012. Initially white flowers, citrus and sliced apple notes. Limited notes. A delicate Champagne with a creamy nutty texture. A better summer than a winter Champers I would venture to say. Very good nonetheless. Technical details: 50/50 Pinot Noir/Chardonnay (I would not have picked this), Dosage of 4 grams per litre; Full malolactic. — a month ago

Brut Crémant d'Alsace Sparkling Blend

Cremant is a personal favorite because it’s champagne without the name brand price. This has light apple, pear, citrus, and yeast. Makes for easy drinking or fancy mimosas. — a month ago
