G.H. Mumm and Key People


Type of Producer
G.H. Mumm has relatively large vineyard holdings (more than 500 acres) for their champagne, but with production of about 8 million bottles, their vineyards only supply about one fourth of their needs. They also purchase grapes from other growers. The French regulations designate Mumm as a Negociant Manipulant (a producer who buys grapes from growers).

Overall Producer Style
After some deviation triggered by different owners and cellar masters, in the past few years Mumm has returned to its signature soft, medium bodied, fresh fruity style and quality.

Annual Production
Over 8 million bottles are produced ranking G.H. Mumm 4th in champagne production.
