Mumm Napa "Brut Prestige" Napa Valley Sparkling Wine

SKU #480015 Connoisseurs Guide

 Built along leaner, slightly citrusy lines and relatively subdued as far any evident autolysis goes, this lively youngster evokes minerals and lemon zest more than anything else and only slowly, ever so reluctantly musters a faint touch of yeast. It is not a wine of great range or depth, but it earns the nod for its freshness and fine balance.  (11/ 2013)

Wine Enthusiast

 This is a very good, everyday bubbly. It’s dryish and crisp, with honey, orange, strawberry and leesy flavors. The mouthfeel is a little rough. Made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Meunier.  (11/ 2013)

Wine Spectator

 Unabashedly California in style, with appealing flavors of raspberry and tropical fruit, showing notes of spicy cinnamon and cream. Drink now.  (11/ 2013)

K&L Notes

Mumm Napa's Prestige cuvee is an excellent, all-purpose sparkler for events and celebrations. It's not heavy on the leesy, yeasty notes, but does show just a hint of nuttiness on the nose, along with subtle fruits, and a sea-spray freshness. Fairly dry and crisp, it's a crowd-pleasing sparkling wine with "a cut above" pedigree. The winery's notes: "Grapes are picked mainly at night – exclusively by hand – and delivered to the winery in signature 'small yellow boxes.' At the winery, fruit is hand-delivered to the presses and slowly de-juiced at low pressure, with the four press fractions kept separate. Low-temperature primary fermentation – mostly in stainless steel – is utilized to enhance fruit tones and preserve freshness. Individual lots are kept separate during initial fermentation to fully express the vineyards’ individual strengths and subtleties....A complex assemblage of primarily Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Brut Prestige opens with gorgeous layered white blossom aromas, followed by creamy vanilla, citrus, stone fruit and melon. With elegant acidity and crisp structure, this medium-bodied sparkling wine displays an excellent mousse and a rich, lingering finish. Refreshing acidity and fruit character makes Brut Prestige an excellent food wine."

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Napa Valley

- America's most famous wine region, which encompasses a varied geographical territory running about 20 miles long from the San Francisco Bay northward to the foot of Mount St. Helena. Napa's great diversity, both in terms of climate and terroir, has led to the creation of a number of smaller AVAs like Stags Leap District, Rutherford, Howell Mountain, Oakville and Mount Veeder, among others. Cabernet and chardonnay still reign supreme, but just about everything under the sun is grown in Napa Valley, in quality levels ranging from $2 jug wine to $500 a bottle California cab.
