Quick Summary

You may have seen it in clubs or promoted by Usain Bolt. Maybe at the F1 or ski resorts. The Mumm brand is synonymous with partying and they have done a good job of moving on from the quality issues of the past. The red sash is now displayed with pride.

What Mumm Brut Cordon Rouge NV tastes like

Acidity
Interestingly if you drink this wine cold, it's overly tangy and acidic. It actually gets much better at warmer temperatures
45%
Smooth
Subtle
Not a huge wine. Easy drinking and approachable
35%
Full
Brevity
This Champagne is on the lighter, fruitier side and thus don't expect a lingering taste past some reserve wine hints
45%
Length
Savoury
At only 8g/L this is surprisingly one of the least sugary mass produced NV's on the market.
25%
Sweet
Fruitness
I'll admit that they actually do a good job of preserving the fruity characteristics of this wine, hints of biscuit but nothing perceptual to the average drinker
25%
Biscuittyness
Earth
There's a dominant soda lime start to the wine and a soft minerality throughout.
55%
Limestone / chalk

Where you can buy Mumm Brut Cordon Rouge NV in Australia

Pernod Ricard means that this wine is nearly everywhere you can find the rest of their wines and spirits. You’d be hard pressed not to be able to find this Champagne in any semi-decent wine/liquor store around the country.

Previous sponsor of the F1, widely distributed and marketed as a party Champagne, this house is the fourth largest by volume mainly as a result of its best-selling Cordon Rouge Brut NV.
