Mumm: Bubbly from France and Napa

    The Mumm family founded the G.H. Mumm champagne house in 1827. In 1876, as a tribute to some of their most prestigious clients, G.H. Mumm decorated a few of their bottles with a crossed red silk ribbon as a reference to the Legion of Honour. Today, G.H. Mumm is the leading champagne brand in France and the third best-selling champagne in the world. The Cordon Rouge Brut is their signature cuvee.
