Champagne G.H. MUMM Brut Millesime 2004
There is a distinctive maturity to the bouquet of this wine - it displays a nuttiness highlighted with baked stone fruit suggestions. The palate tells a different story - it is powerful and rich with texture an important appeal - the mousse is fine and then gets even finer as the wine warms in the glass. There are plenty of fruit characters reminiscent of lemon peel and baked apple.
This particular wine begins to lose bubble just a little sooner than I would have liked, yet from a somewhat difficult vintage this wine is quite charming and elegant. The other attribute I notice as this wine warms a little is the finish gets longer.
Overall a delicious wine
