Mumm Napa DVX Brut 2003
This prestigious tête de cuvée honors the visionary work of Guy Devaux. Brilliant and clear, this vintage selection has a pale straw loveliness that opens with toasted almonds, honey and lemon zest. A complex finish lingers with tones of creamy yeast notes, clove, granny smith apples and a hint of apricot. We recommend enjoying with sautéed scallops over linguini, wild mushroom risotto, tuna saltimbocca or simply great company.
Sleek and elegant, with apple blossom and spiced ginger aromas that lead to rich yet delicate flavors of baked pear and crème brûlée, mixed with crisp citrus. Finishes with a vibrant, mineral-laced acidity. Drink now through 2016. 1,000 cases made.
A brut-style sparkler, at the age of eight years it’s still fresh and crisp, with yeasty flavors of limes, strawberries, vanilla and toast. Feels dry and austere despite a honeyed richness, just what you want in a great sparkling wine. Seems best over the next six years.
