Reims, the city of kings and champagne, is the place where, since 1827, the historic Maison Mumm creates its champagnes. “Only the best” was the motto of Georges Hermann Mumm and champagne RSRV, acronym of “résérvé”, is the perfect sum of this.
Since 1838 Mumm decided to produce special cuvées for lovers and friends of the Maison. The Chef de Cave noted in the winery's records the best bottles with the acronym RSRV. Today, we have in front of us a great Pinot Noir from Verzenay, the Grand Cru, which is born in the mountains of Reims, and produced only in the best vintages.
Today Maison Mumm has decided to share the 2012 vintage in the Italian market with a preview on the outskirts of Milan, in Cornaredo, the headquarters of chef Davide Oldani. A menu studied to enhance the 100% Pinot Noir bubbles, and show their excellent versatility in terms of pairing, especially with the new pasta in 3D, created in collaboration with BluRhapsody, which has the Acini d’Uva as the best way to pay tribute to this great cuvée.
