An Evening With G.H.MUMM – The Number One Champagne House In France….
Last night I attended the most fabulous dinner with G.H.Mumm Champagne. Held at the Hanene Pavilion in Kohimarama, media were treated to an informative, yet relaxing & entertaining evening with Didier Mariotti, Cellar Master – G.H.Mumm.
Throughout the evening media were able to experience, first hand, the ‘Art of Sabrage’ – a popular part of the traditional serving of Champagne since the days of Napoleon (using either a sword or the stem of a wine glass to open the Champagne at the neck of the bottle, the neck removed in one swift slice), and as the four courses were served, Didier explained to guests the Champagne & food pairing.
Matched to the canapes on arrival, guests enjoyed a glass (or two) of G.H.Mumm Cordon Rouge. With the Tuna Sashimi – G.H.Mumm Blanc de Blancs. Butter Poached Crayfish with G.H.Mumm Millesime 2004. Sous Vide Poussin with G.H.Mumm Cuvee R’Lalou 1999, and dessert – which was a spectacular Peach Mousse, was served with G.H.Mumm Brut Rose. Each and every glass of champagne was absolutely beautiful, but I have to say the standout for me was the Cuvee R’Lalou.
In summary – the perfect evening, with Champagne flowing, held at the most exquisite venue! Another seamless event executed by Pernod Ricard, showcasing the most sought after in Champagne – G.H.Mumm.
Check out some of the highlights from the evening….
