In 1882, G.H.Mumm bought some vines in the village of Cramant, on the highly prized Côtes des Blancs, right in the heart of the Champagne region. This Chardonnay Grand Cru is fresh and elegant – a remarkable Champagne with matchless precision and finesse.
Light and delicate bubbles dissolve in a bright and luminous liquid, shot through with green and soft yellow glints. On the nose, Blanc de Blancs reveals notes of scented white blossoms, lemon, fresh fruits and chalk. A very elegant and subtly mineral attack with a creamy texture leads into a smooth body and an intense expressive finish that testifies to its aging potential.
The 2012 vintage put a stop to the decade of high-yield harvests in Champagne. The atrocious weather until late July caused a decline in production. The good news is that this decline led to a late, ripe and healthy harvest. With an average of 12% alcohol, the vintage is as rich in sugar content as 2003. Cramant has practically the same acidity as in 2011, but with an additional degree of alcohol, therefore the wines are more mature and energetic.
RSRV Blanc de Blancs is a perfect match for seafood and fish. Enjoy it with oysters, lobster served with spring vegetables, sushi, or scallop carpaccio.
