A gorgeous Champagne-like sparkling wine. As good as the 2000 it's rich and silky with a very fine mousse and rich citrus and yeast flavors. Needs time. Give it at least five or six years in the bottle if you can keep... A gorgeous Champagne-like sparkling wine. As good as the 2000 it's rich and silky with a very fine mousse and rich citrus and yeast flavors. Needs time. Give it at least five or six years in the bottle if you can keep your hands off. - S.H.

Delicately complex at first building power and richness. Aromas of Asian pear toasty spice and loam lead to layered lemon curd hazelnut and brioche flavors that balance crisp acidity with a luscious texture. Drink now...

Here is another in the line of flinty austere steely yet deep layered sparkling wines under this Mumm Napa nameplate dedicated to its first winemaker Guy DeVaux. Every wine in the line is tight convincing brisk loaded with an insistent stream of tiny bubbles that are perfectly in tune with the cracklingly crisp character of its flavors and they are perhaps more than any others made here in California distinctly reminiscent of the tightest wines from Champagne. This one begs for a platter of fresh-shucked oysters.

Yellowing straw in color. The moderately intense bouquet brings French champagne to mind as aromas of lemon meringue and brioche are easily noted. Fairly full bodied this cuvée shows more structural aspects to its texture... Yellowing straw in color. The moderately intense bouquet brings French champagne to mind as aromas of lemon meringue and brioche are easily noted. Fairly full bodied this cuvée shows more structural aspects to its texture with dried citrus dominating the flavors which start out subtly at first and quickly crescendo towards a concentrated backpalate where dried pear and apricot contribute to a firm finish. A perfect match for white meat dishes like pork or veal.
