G.H. Mumm Champagne Cordon Rouge 1990 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.
Pairs well with…
- Summer Fruits

new Collection du Chef de Caves will enable the House to share some of its finest mature vintages with Champagne connoisseurs across the world.
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 1990s. With the back labels personally signed by Didier Mariotti and featuring the date of disgorgement, the magnums will be presented in an authentic antique-white wooden gift box.
1990 was also considered to be a classic Champagne vintage – the final in a trio of ‘great vintages’ at the end of the 1980s.
Yields were low in 1990 because of the late spring frosts, and following a very hot and dry July, the grapes reached very high levels of natural sugar, but with a fairly low acidity level.
However, the Pinot Noirs again were outstanding, particularly from the key crus for Mumm: Verzenay, Verzy, Bouzy, Ambonnay and Mailly. The vintage 1990 is, following its two precedent years, the 47th successful millésime of the Champagne Maison Mumm.
