Champagne Mumm Ad Girl

I couldn’t resist playing around a bit with this photo of an vintage poster ad for Mumm Champagne that we saw when we were on that Champagne tasting event in the beginning of November: Champagne Tasting Rocks.

Very suitable to this blogs layout color and the fact that I’m drinking a sparkling wine right now – after all: it is Saturday night, right?

We’ve been tasting some new sparkling Rosé wines which are on there way into the Swedish market and quite cheap.

Right now a Cava: Freixenet’s Elyssia, Pinot Noir Brut. It did not become any favorite for us, despite the fact that it was awarded “The worlds best Cava 2010″ by the Spanish Guia Repsol. 85% Pinot Noir, 15% Trepat.

The bottle is extremely elegant designed though! We really love that!

Maybe the problem was that the Tapas to go with it were missing??!! *giggles*

We also tasted Anna de Codorniu Brut Rosé Cava earlier, but no favorite that either. 70% Pinot Noir och 30% Chardonnay.

We really did like the Pol Remy Rosé Brut much better. It’s created with the Charmat method and today owned by Patriarche, one of the biggest wine producers in Bourgogne, France.

It’s really price worthy, a good product to a cheap price. 6070 bottles sold here in just a short time, that speaks it’s own language. There is a non Rosé version too, great that one too.

Two other, not Rosé that we’ve tasted recently are:

1) Lindemans Bin 25 Brut Cuvée, made from Chardonnay & Colombard grapes, Ok, but no favorite either. Great price though.

2) de Venoge Cordon Bleu brut, not so very cheap, Chardonnay 25% Pinot Noir 50% Pinot Meunier 25% – which you clearly could see on the golden color and feel on the taste of buiscuity aromas.

When out traveling though, I always try to drink local products – at least from the same country! If not testing local things when you’re there, you could as well stay at home….

Cheers my dears!

    I used to love Champagne too, but now I don’t drink any alcohol anymore. But I found a real good substitute, it’s a “Champagne” withouth alcohol and it even tastes very good, everybody says so.

    Thank you for testing and releasing your opnions – sparkling wine is after all very expensive here in Norway – hence we better find something good at first hand.
