With a legacy of almost two centuries behind it - the House of G.H. Mumm, established in 1827, still aspires to the original aims of the great Georges Hermann Mumm, one of the father figures of the House. His passion was to achieve the highest possible quality for G.H. Mumm champagnes: time after time he was heard to say "Only the Best". In 1875, he decided to decorate each of his bottles with the prized Cordon Rouge or red sash of the Légion d’Honneur, the highest French civilian distinction, created by Napoleon I. Over and above the symbol of excellence that it represents, the Cordon Rouge embodies the true spirit that drives the House: the quest for perfection, a spirit of adventure and panache. The Cordon Rouge vintage is a complex blend of over 77 wines. G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge offers a consistent style and a subtle balance between freshness and intensity. Serving Suggestions: Champagne is to be served cold at about 43 to 48°F (7°C). In this range the smell and taste can be fully appreciated. This temperature can be achieved by placing the unopened bottle in an ice bucket — one-half ice and one-half water — for 20 to 30 minutes.
