G.H. Mumm Champagne Cordon Rouge 1985 150cl
Re-releasing a limited quantity of magnums of the celebrated Cordon Rouge Millésimes of 1985, 1990 and 1996 from a brand new Collection du Chef de Caves. The entire Collection includes magnums of the best vintages from the last 30 years that have been kept in perfect conditions in the cellars at Mumm in Reims, enabling the House to track its oenological history.
The decision to re-release small quantities of three vintages at a time, when they are considered by Cellar Master Didier Mariotti to showing one aspect of the vintage particularly well, will showcase the consistency and ageing potential of Mumm Vintage Champagnes. Each magnum has been given a light dosage of just 4g/l to let the true characteristics of the wine shine through.

Each magnum within the initial release will carry a bespoke label inspired by the historical look and feel of the famous Cordon Rouge Millésime bottle of the 1980s.

The 1985 vintage has been heralded as one of the classic vintages of the 1980s in Champagne.
Despite a very cold winter, that saw temperatures plummet to -30°C, and a challenging spring, the summer of 1985 was warm and very sunny helping to produce a good crop of perfectly healthy grapes with an ideal balance between fruitiness and acidity, so good that the Cellar Master at the time compared it to the grand vintages of 1979 and 1975.
At the time, 1985 became the 43rd vintage of the Champagne Maison Mumm in its one and a half century’s history.
30 years later, this magnum of 1985 was taken out of the cellars and staged in this brand new Collection du Chef de Caves. At the peak of its evolution, it reveals its complexity in aroma and its well-rounded, full-bodied character in the palate.
