N/V Cordon Rouge G.H. Mumm Brut Champagne
We picked this bottle up for $25
Nice strawberry essence on the nose.
More strawberry on the palate...a fair amount of yeast and some crisp red apple, citrus, with a bit of toast and vanilla. There’s just a bit too much acid which makes it somewhat harsh, but it’s hardly bad and if you’re serving it with food, not noticeable at all.
And the finish...you guessed it, lingering strawberry and toast and quite of a bit of vanilla.
Not bad at all.
