Champagne G. H. Mumm, based in Reims, is one of the largest producers in Champagne. The portfolio is centered around the zesty, refreshing Cordon Rouge Brut, which is based on the classic Champagne blend, along with a range of other styles including brut rosé, demi-sec, vintage and blanc de blancs. The top wine is the Cuvée R. Lalou.
The company owns around 220 hectares (540 acres) of vines, mostly in some of the top grand cru vineyards in Champagne. These holdings make up approximately 25 percent of Mumm's production, with the remaining grapes coming from independent growers, with whom Mumm has long-standing relationships in order to help maintain a consistent style in the finished product. The Cordon Rouge is aged for two and a half years, with vintage wines spending nearly five years in bottle. These are aged in Mumm's 15 miles (25km) of cellars, which are home to almost 25 million bottles of wine.
P.A. Mumm Giesler was founded in Reims in 1827 by three winemaking Mumm brothers, along with two other investors, all from the Rhine Valley in Germany. The company was later renamed as G. H. Mumm et Cie, and released the first Cordon Rouge, with its iconic red sash, in 1876.
Mumm has expanded beyond Champagne, opening Mumm Napa in the Napa Valley in 1983.
