Mumm RSRV R. Lalou 2006 Champagne

Interesting house, Mumm. A large champagne producer for certain, but one that sometimes seems as though it has not quite worked out what it wants to be.

A wonderful history, but then for a period it seemed to descend into little more than a discount producer with a few good wines for variety. More recently, there appeared to be a serious intent to return to the glory days when this house was seen as one of the greats.

More recently still, the jury remains in deliberations.

Mumm, or G. H. Mumm & Cie to give it the full moniker, is now part of the Pernod Ricard empire, joining in 2005 and sitting comfortably with another superb producer, Perrier-Jouët. It was recently ranked fourth in terms of volume, but it heads the sales of champagne in France. Mumm champagnes are also very popular in the USA.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

We were fortunate enough to share a bottle of 2002 G.H. Mumm Cuvee R. Lalou Prestige Brut Millesime at a recent birthday dinner, as my sister is a senior executive with Pernod Ricard. It was sensational, so complex and soft. Only bettered, in my uninformed opinion and limited experience, by a 1998 Krug Rose.
