Cuvée Lalou 2006

buy online

Of the 12 specific plots in the Maison Mumm vineyard, equally distributed between Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, seven were selected for the unique blend of RSRV Lalou 2006 (Les Bionnes, Les Crupots, Les Briquettes, Les Perthes, Hannepés, Les Rochers, Les Houles).

These seven Grand Cru wines were previously pressed separately, then vinified one by one. In line with Maison Mumm’s uncompromising standards, a 10-year aging period and a dosage of 6 grams per liter fully reveal their complex and elegant aromas.

  • To the eye

    Pure gold.

  • On the nose

    An elegant mineral departure, opening out into sweet pastry notes. Aromas of candied lemon and pear marmalade, complemented by gourmet notes of vanilla, with hints of toast and brioche.

  • On the palate

    A rounded, powerful attack. As the wine develops, it demonstrates great length on the palate, combining fullness and freshness.

    THE 2006 VINTAGE

    Worthy of a great vintage, 2006 was a year of contrasts. A relatively cold winter was followed by a warm spring, with temperatures rising to high levels in July. August, however, witnessed cool temperatures and record rainfall, which could have damaged the fruit.

    Fortunately, this proved not to be the case, as warm, dry weather in September resulted in a fine-quality harvest. A combination of sun and wind created ideal conditions for ripeness.
