The artist Léonard Foujita, a friend of the House, drew the rose motif which has decorated the bottle of Mumm rosé champagne since 1958. RSRV Rosé Foujita is a blend of six Grand Cru terroirs, bringing together Pinot Noir from Verzenay, Aÿ and Bouzy, and Chardonnay from Cramant and Avize. Red wine from Ambonnay, another Grand Cru village, is added to the blend, lending fullness and intensity on the palate, as well as aromas of red and black fruit. The grapes are pressed and vinified separately before being blended with reserve wines.
The wine is aged for four years in the cellars, before the dosage liqueur, sourced from Grand Cru terroirs and matured in oak barrels, adds final notes of pastry and vanilla.
The aromatic richness of this cuvée allows for multiple possibilities. It may be paired with meat such as beef, fish like salmon, and any creamy dessert. RSRV Rosé Foujita can accompany a meal from start to finish.
Available only at exclusive gastronomic restaurants and premium bars.
