In the case where the addressee was absent, the upper right corner of this label was then folded down, sign that one had come in person to pay his respects. The RSRV label makes a subtle allusion to this story with a beveled corner.
Produced in limited quantity, RSRV Blanc de Blancs is distinguished by a bottle with a fine neck allowing a slower evolution of the wine and a longer conservation.
The dressing of the bottle revisits one of the most beautiful legends of champagne: in the 19th century, the vintage Mumm Cramant was delivered in person, accompanied by a business card. If the happy recipient was absent, the upper right corner of this label was folded down, a sign that one had come in person to pay his respects (Photo credits: Mumm).
It is to this custom that the beveled corner of the main label is obviously alluded to. At Mumm, you know how to cultivate and take care of your story.

For the presentation of its new range, the Champagne House imagined a polished wooden case adorned with a leather strap containing six standing RSRV bottles. This box will certainly be diverted by some as a real object of decoration and by others in a nomadic box. La Maison Mumm is part of Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët, the prestigious cognac and champagne branch of the Pernod Ricard group, the world No. 2 Wine and Spirits. With a heritage dating back to 1827, Mumm is the first International Champagne House in France and the third in the World. Recognizable by its red ribbon inlaid in the bottle, the vintage Mumm Grand Cordon embodies the spirit of the House.
A blend of six Grands Crus from terroirs acquired by Maison Mumm since 1840, RSRV Rosé Foujita is decorated with the rose painted for the House in 1957 by Léonard Foujita, a famous Japanese painter and friend of Maison Mumm.
“Cramant means “chalk mount”. From the minerality of this soil emanates the freshness of our Blanc de Blancs. This champagne is for those who are looking for this purity so difficult to reach. Incisive, his attack is frank, its fine bubbles and instant pleasure.” Didier Mariotti – Cellar Manager of Maison Mumm (photo credits: Alexandre Plateaux).
“The vintage Rosé Foujita is a racy wine whose mouth is elegant and harmonious. Tinted with red fruits and more subtle aromas such as blood orange, this rosé champagne sublimate the best moments.” Didier Mariotti – Cellar Manager of Maison Mumm (photo credits: Alexandre Plateaux).
Some words about Mumm history… The roots of the Von Mumm family, belonging to the Germanic nobility, date back to the Middle Ages. It is in the 18th century that it links its history to that of wine. In 1761 Peter Arnold Mumm decided to start producing and selling wines in Cologne. He passes on this passion to his sons Jacobus, Gottlieb and Philipp, who in turn become pioneers in the nascent champagne industry (photo credits: Mumm).
Crossing the border, they settled in Reims, and officially founded in 1827 the House of champagne Mumm. In 1852, Georges Hermann Mumm, son of one of the founders, took over the destiny of the company G.H.Mumm et Cie. By constituting the vineyard of the House, it lays the foundations of a policy of excellence. An open-minded man and defender of social progress, he sets up prizes of virtue or bonuses of misfortune rewarding deserving workers because of their age or infirmity (Mumm).
In the wake of the founding fathers, he pushes the boundaries and travels the world from Europe to Oceania to market his cuvées. From 1900, the House has about twenty subsidiaries in major markets, such as the United States, Russia, Canada, but also Brazil and Peru. His greatest creation remains the famous “Cordon Rouge” in 1875. He is today the symbol of quality signed Mumm.
