    July 15, 2019 - Slightly more developed than the previous bottle, but completely true to the house style, and ,wonderfully engaging.

    May 7, 2019 - I bought this on a whim as it was discounted and I was hoping to be able to say that this was a decent prospect at a reduced price (£20). Unfortunately it was overshadowed by Piper Heidsieck NV, Laurent Perrier NV and Taittinger NV, some of which can be purchased at the same price.

    According to Mumm's website, this spends 20 months on the lees, more than the minimum, but significantly less than its peers. It shows.

    April 27, 2019 - Reliably good Champagne.
    Good yeast autolysis character, well balanced, only lacking a bit in complexity and elegance.
    In the end, you have to admit this is well made for such a large scale production

    April 3, 2019 - The new clear plastic label (not very environmentally friendly!). Very pale lemon colour. Bright nose of lemon and biscuit, lime and a touch of musky vanilla. Similar flavour profile, plenty of lime and mild bitterness. It's fine, quite classic, albeit unremarkable, though not worth the usual price. [Cork + cage; 12% abv; Sainsbury's, on offer at £20, usually £32].

    (NV Mumm Cordon Rouge) The base vintage here is 2004, with 25% reserve wines coming entirely from the 2001, 2002 and 2003 vintages. Dosage 8 g/l. Lightly chalky fruit on the nose, slightly touched by toffee, overall a nice, soft appeal. On the palate it has rather obvious fruit and fatness but it is attractive, although soft and fleshy. Nicely composed. Good for current drinking rather than keeping I would say.

    (NV Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut NV) #4; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-golden; NOSE-baked wood and burn potato skin; peach component as well; TASTE-good ripeness; lots of acid; a little disjointed; loaded w/ lots of apple peel which I like; smoky & woody components; lacks focus and not as high in acid as I'd like to see; also not as much creaminess; solid, but unexciting for me; GV-85

    (NV Mumm Cordon Rouge) The nose here is completely swamped by sulphur, so it is impossible for me to comment on the aromatic profile. And there follows a huge, foamy palate, which gives a nice creaminess to it although nothing can counter that heavy treatment of sulphur which comes through on the palate also, from start to finish. In this state it is not feasible for me to make any judgement on the quality of the wine. Nevertheless I don't have much optimism for it.

    (NV Mumm Cordon Rouge) Lemon fruit and sulphur on the nose. A very soft style, foamy mousse, a touch chemical but this is down to the sulphur I think. Creamy but light, with citrus and herb flavour on the palate. It has a decent presence on the palate but the sulphur here is a concern. There is still room for improvement at Mumm I think.

    April 2002 (link) 15 points

    (NV Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut Champagne) Purchased Spring 2002. Attractively packaged, and the wine itself has an attractive colour and good bead. The nose has considerable appeal, with warm brioche, lemony fruit, and a suggestion of a developing nutty, marzipan element. The palate has fairly aggressive acidity, with a somewhat sour character towards the finish, but some good fresh fruit and a toasty edge. Firm mousse. Quite acceptable, particularly in this price bracket, and time in the bottle will tame that acidity.
