Mumm "Mumm de Cramant" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

SKU #100002 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Super fresh and chalky, this has a wealth of white almond, white flowers and pithy grapefruit plus lemon citrus fruits. The palate has a pristine heart of lime and lemon citrus fruit flavors. Supple and fleshy, it is pared back to reveal a very focused core of purity and length. Stunning wine. Inner quote mark (7/2015)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark From the grand cru village of Cramant, this 100% Chardonnay is Mumm's signature Champagne. This latest bottling is tight, taut and beautifully textured. Crisp apples, squeezed lemon and layers of acidity give a wine that is delicate, dry and well balanced. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lightly toasty up front, this is mouthwatering and expressive, with a fine, creamy bead and flavors of lemon pâte de fruit, glazed apricot, graphite and smoke. The rich finish offers hints of toasted almond, candied kumquat and fleur de sel. (AN, Web-2016) Inner quote mark

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (all grand cru fruit from Cramant; 8 g/l dosage; L1441300081): Pale gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of fresh pear, white peach and tangerine, with subtle honey and sweet butter qualities in the background. Spicy and focused on the palate, offering juicy orchard and pit fruit flavors and a subtle touch of toastiness. Closes supple and very long, leaving notes of smoky minerals and brioche behind. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark While leading with a quick note of biscuits and dark toast in the nose, this lean and fairly classic Blanc de Blancs quickly fixes on lean, distantly citric fruit and shows a strong bent to minerals. It is quite dry and slightly austere under its creamy mousse, and its lengthy, ever so slightly chalky finish is punctuated by the barest hint of stony bitterness. Inner quote mark (12/2012)

K&L Notes

A rare cuvée made since 1882, the Mumm De Cramant has only been available for sale since 1960. This wine is made from Chardonnay grown in Cramant, a village on the Côte des Blancs. It has a pale lemon hue, with nearly weightless bubbles that yield a gentle, creamy sparkle. Aromas of white flowers, fresh fruit and lemon dominate the nose, which continue onto the palate, followed by tangy grapefruit and kumquat notes.

Mumm has been making this wine since 1882, and at first it wasn’t sold and used instead only as gifts. The “folded” edge of the label is homage to this history, and used to be a sign that the bottle and gift card were delivered personally by the giver. This Champagne is made at 4.5 atmospheres of pressure (about 65 psi) rather than the regular six (about 90 psi)- a style that used to be referred to as Cremant- in fact this wine was called “Cremant de Cramant” in the past. Now the term Cremant is used to describe sparkling wines made in France outside of the Champagne region that use traditional bottle fermentation and is not allowed for Champagne. It is entirely Chardonnay from the grand cru village of Cramant at the north end of the Cotes des Blancs and this village gives the wine both great ripeness and fabulous chalky minerality. Although the dosage of the Mumm de Cramant is quite low at six grams per liter, this wine is loaded with fleshy white fruit from the top notch terroir. The back end it balanced by succulent acidity and great chalky presence, making this a very fine aperitif. Cinnamon and I enjoyed this on its own before dinner, and loved the completeness, richness and refreshing character of the wine. If you have never had the Mumm de Cramant, it is worth checking out!
