If you've done your research – or even if you haven't – you'll know only too well that winning 27th place in the fabled Top 50 best Champagnes is something of a monumental achievement. This mark of excellence, bestowed by the Revue du Vin de France, is much coveted and one which the two brothers who founded Mumm probably had no idea they would one day be in the running for.

Beginning the House of G.H. Mumm in 1827, the pair focused on their job with a steely determination, and so it should come as no surprise that Mumm is, in fact, the third most loved Champagne brand in over 100 worldwide countries. Oh, and we should also say that they're the market leaders in France, too, although we highly doubt that will come as much of a shock!

As big as they come, and with a historic legacy behind them which can easily compete with any of the other top Champagne brands, this House strive for quality as well as quality. Producing an immense 8 million or so bottles every single year, as much as 60% are sent out of the country and end up in lands far and wide.

Champagne Mumm: A Wine Odyssey Since 1827

Since 1827, Maison G.H. Mumm has had its roots in the world of champagne, thus establishing its wine heritage long before its official foundation. The Mumm family lineage, dating back to the 12th century with barons and knights, engaged in the production and sale of wine as early as 1761 in Cologne, under the name "P.A. Mumm". By this time, the company had important vineyards in the Rhine Valley and produced its own wines.

The Champagne adventure began at the beginning of the 19th century when the three sons of Peter Arnold Mumm, Gottlieb, Jacobus and Philipp, visionaries and entrepreneurs, grasped the commercial potential of Champagne sparkling wine. Taking advantage of the "cordial peace" between Germany and France, they settled in Reims in 1827, creating a branch with the help of a Champenois, G. Heuser. From the beginning, the quest for quality became a constant rule, a motto embodied by Georges Hermann Mumm: “Only the best”.

Champagne Mumm: The Quest for Excellence and Innovation

Always at the forefront of innovation since its creation, the Mumm Champagne House has established a tradition of excellence. Installing the presses directly in the vineyards, a bold decision as early as 1827, expresses an unwavering commitment to quality, reflecting Georges Hermann Mumm's motto: "Only the best". Mumm Champagne House has constantly explored new methods to best express the powerful, rich and fruity character of Pinot Noir, grown in the Grand Cru village of Verzenay.

The Mumm champagne vineyard, acquired over two centuries, bears witness to the exceptionality of the terroir. 98% of the plots are classified on the Echelle des Crus, with a majority of 78% planted with Pinot Noir. Concerned about preserving this heritage, the Mumm Champagne House promotes biodiversity and seeks to reduce environmental pressure on its vineyards.
