An unusual blend of 48% Chardonnay, 43% Pinot Noir, 6% Pinot Gris and 3% Pinot Meunier, this is pale sunflower-yellow, with a thick mousse and well-developed layers of orange blossom, lemon and pear.

Rich and refreshing with a slightly sweet flavor; a distinctive Granny Smith apple flavor running throughout; a nice finish.

With a slightly sweet finish set off by high natural acidity, this wine is fruity but not cloying. Primarily Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with smaller amounts of Pinots Meunier and Gris, it has rich cherry cream, citrus rind, peach and vanilla flavors, with a clean, yeasty finish. Mumm has set the standard for nonvintage bruts such as this. Try with puff-pastry hors d’oeuvres.

Bold, creamy aromas of tropical fruit and floral vanilla lead to rich, slightly sweet flavors with notes of spice and white chocolate. A fun quaff. Drink now.

This is a sweeter style of sparkling wine by Mumm, the style is called Sec in French. You’ll find a trace of honey and sugar on the finish to the raspberries, strawberries and vanilla.

Light yellow, with a gentle bead. Ripe pear and nectarine on the nose, with a hint of spun sugar. Smooth, gently sweet orchard fruit and melon flavors are given a slightly bitter edge by a touch of fruit pit and are a tad loose-knit. Finishes on the sweet side but avoids coming off cloying. A bit of late-harvest muscat is used in the dosage, which probably accounts for the pronounced fruitiness.

Sweet yet refreshing, with pretty strawberry, black cherry and raspberry jam notes, with a touch of citrus and floral, perfumed notes. Drink now through 2008.

A fine California bubbly, soft and luxurious in the finesse of its bubbles. The orange, strawberry and vanilla cream flavors are overtly sweet, making this a good partner for wedding cake.
86 pts. Wine Spectator: December 31, 2006
Appealing for its soft and slightly sweet raspberry, vanilla and strawberry aromas and flavors, accented by spice and graham cracker. Drink now.

Clean, light scents of Pinot Noir grapes give this a simple line. It’s on the soft side of dry. For aperitifs.
85 pts. Wine Spectator: November 30, 2008
This displays an appealing hint of honeyed sweetness, then supports it with a crisp backbone. There’s festive flavors of peach, dried apricot and cinnamon. Drink now.
