Mumm Vintage 2009
A compelling wine whose rich attack blossoms into a voluptuous and long mineral finish.
Described by Chef de Caves Didier Mariotti as “a wine of power that is cloaked in roundness and fruit character” the Mumm Vintage 2009 is ready to burst into life after five years of slowly developing, whilst undisturbed and sheltered from light, in the Maison’s cellars.
Tasting the 2009 vintage is like experiencing a freeze frame in time – those explosive taste sensations are what makes it such an extraordinary cuvée. One that is perfect for celebrating with friends, exploring with daring food matches or just savouring in your own very special moment of success.
2009 was an exceptionally ripe vintage; and this cuvée is driven by the power of the 68% Pinot Noirs, enhanced by the mineral freshness of the 32% Grand Cru Chardonnays that bring balance and attitude to the wine. Mumm 2009 reveals real aromatic complexity.
Yellow fruit compote and stewed apricot from the Pinot Noir dominate the nose, with hints of vanilla, brioche and honey. In the mouth the rich attack blossoms into a long and lingering, harmonious finish.
