Top 10 Summer Wines 2010

Mumm Napa Brut Rose, one of our Top 10 Summer Wines


Mumm Napa Brut Rosé
Napa Valley, California

Mumm's Brut Rosé (formerly known as the Blanc de Noirs release) offers a bouquet of ripe Pinot Noir fruit, with rich black cherry and strawberry notes. Part of the wine is initially fermented in the press, producing the soft fruity character that gives this sparkling rosé its directness, while a small percentage of Chardonnay gives the wine power and structure. The robust quality of this Napa Valley sparkling wine makes it a great match for a variety of cuisines, from Thai to Italian. It is an elegant wine for the price.
