The champagne mark Mumm is worldwidly known and owns a part of its success to a man: René Lalou. This emblematic character was the president of the house from 1920 to 1973 and deserved a cuvee at his own name. And what a cuvee! The cellar master gathered here the best of 12 mythical Grands crus little towns.
Because of strong temperature contrasts, the vintage 2002 was immediately intended to be an amazing vintage with grapes from low sourness and high sweetness.
The chardonnay grapes present a supple and generous character and reveal fresh and lively aromas of exotic fruits and vanilla. The Pinot noir brings a strong matter and a powerful and complex nose of especially ripe and cooked fruits. The equal quantity blending of each of these two grapes offers a superb complementarity between power, elegance, ampleness and finesse.
Much more than a homage to a figure of Champagne, it is an exceptional bottle, well known by the wine-treasure hunters.
