A new release from giant Champagne House G.H. Mumm and part of the Mumm Terroir Collection. Made by Jamie Marfell who has been making sparkling wines in the region for nearly 2 decades. Aged on lees for three years, this is traditional blend of “45% Chardonnay, 43% Pinot Noir and 8% of Meunier.” Not sure on the maths there…
