G. H.Mumm "Cordon Rouge" wine review by (PB)
Straw hue with streaming, pin-prick bubbles giving off a slightly nutty bouquet.
Palate--Hazelnut front with harsh bubbles and very fleeting flavor with a quick finish.
This is the wine poured in the movie Casablanca with the Bogey at his best. This was also my first Champagne which I opened with a sword under the tutelage of my son "Billy" of this blog, on a recent trip to Minnesota and kept all my digits intact!
This Champagne run anywhere from the low $20's to the mid $40's. Personally, I'd rather spend the money on a good domestic sparkler like Mumm's Brut Prestige but that's just me! Raise a glass--TONIGHT!
