Mumm Napa Cuvee 'M' NV
Wine Enthusiast: Rated as Excellent, extremely well made and highly recommended. "This is a delicious, brut-style wine, based on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It’s very rich in strawberry, raspberry and lime flavors, with vanilla and toast complexities, and the finish is honey-sweet and spicy. Great price for a bubbly this elegant." Dec 2010
Winery: "A light peach rose color in the flute, Cuvée M exhibits a graceful stream of very fine bubbles gently rising to a persistent mousse cordon. The aromas are elegant, rich and complex, showing fresh white and yellow stone fruits with subtle hints of wild strawberry. A light touch of fresh brioche, with hints of vanilla and honey add to the wine's complex bouquet. On the palate, full flavors of peach and combine with a creamy caramel character, which lingers into a long, satisfying finish. The perfect aperitif with hors d'ouevres, Cuvée M also pairs beautifully with creamy desserts and spicy foods."
Wired For Wine: It's about time for a little bubbly, we think. Enter the Mumm Napa Cuvée 'M'. You'll get a very warm reception when you top off everyone's glass and then serve a platter of foie gras toasts drizzled with a port/cherry reduction. Helloooo delicious. This wonderfully complex sparkler, and its elegant fruit nuances, vanilla and toast, combine to craft a wine which pairs effortlessly with seafood, chicken, smoked fish, eggs and more. Cook up a relatively simple dinner of orange and brandy-glazed cornish hens with a fruit/pine nut pilaf, and they'll think you slaved for hours. When the nights are still a bit cool, the perfect companion for this Mumm stunner is a lobster boil with corn, shrimp, lots of garlic and potatoes. Make sure there's plenty of spicy mayo for dipping when you load up the plates... This Cuvée is most certainly not just for dinner. It is fantastic with eggs and egg dishes, so we say invite everyone over for an unforgettable brunch of scrambled eggs made with cream, topped with chives and caviar, and these fine Napa bubbles. We love a classic rice pudding for dessert with a newly filled glass. The cinnamon in the pudding is just about the most perfect accompaniment to the hint of brioche and vanilla in the wine. What are you waiting for?? Bring on the bubbles!
