Mission Codename Mais Oui!
And now for something deliciously different: For our first time ever, we’re showcasing a gift box!
Just in time for the Winter holidays, we’re offering you an incredible French Champagne from G.H. Mumm. Their Grand Cordon Brut Champagne comes in a stunning, original bottle and is accompanied by two high-quality Champagne flutes.
Breaking with convention, the bottle has no front label: The G.H. Mumm signature and eagle emblem are printed in gold directly on the glass. Another striking feature of the design is its shape, which necessitated a whole series of innovations to the traditional champagne production process. Mumm Grand Cordon was created by award-winning designer Ross Lovegrove.
In the glass, this gorgeous pale straw Champagne dances with a vibrant display of bubbles. On the nose, there’s a lush bouquet with fruit such as apple, loquat, and pear joined by notes of almond and honey. The palate is spot on with a wonderful flavor profile that includes tangy tangerine, elderflower, marzipan, vanilla, and subtle caramel. With a light dosage, this brut is exactly what you hope for when you pop that cork - refreshingly dry, vibrant and fruit-forward. Excellent! Best paired with your favorite people, you’ll be well equipped to make some fond memories.
Grab a box or two for yourself, and pick some up for your favorite bubbly fans. This is one gift that will score big points for the giver!
Here’s what the wine press has to say:
90 Points - Wine Spectator - “A firm, well-knit Champagne, in an aperitif style, this offers a lightly toasty mix of ripe apricot, black currant, anise and candied lemon zest flavors, set on a crisp, lively mousse. Drink now through 2020.”
