Pernod Ricard has released a new cuvée under its GH Mumm Champagne brand. Mumm 6 is named after the number of years the Champagne has spent on the lees. The company said the launch marks a “modern reinterpretation of the ageing process”.
“The wine is clearly labelled to show the number of years spent on the lees rather than a specific vintage year, breaking the longheld traditions of mature Champagne,” Pernod said.
The wine is a blend of around 70% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims, with a “touch of mineral Chardonnay” from the Côte des Blancs.
The dosage liquid is from wine aged in oak barrels for eight months.
