“An inspired style, an elegant champagne that is at the same time décontracté, sophisticated and never boring”. This is how G.H. MUMM Millésimé 2006 talks about itself. This champagne arrived for the first time in Italy as 56 ° thousandth of Maison Mumm,1827, wrapped in “a second golden skin”, Cuvée Cordon Rouge.

Then, Mumm F1* Gold Edition for Formula 1 lovers and “those of the night”, with golden and “sport-couture” touches, result of the skilful assemblage of 77 among the best French crus.

Vintage allows to better express the style of the Maison, highlighting the unique taste and flavour” said Chef de Cave Didier Mariotti. In fact, it is not a coincidence that vintage, retro, stories and the highest craftsmanship – more than bespoke cars, like very personal are people’s tastes – have been the ingredients of the special evening took place yesterday at Castagna “garage” in via Beroldo, Milan.

There are people who, during the customisation of their own car, also asked for a chiller” said the patron.

Yesterday night was all dedicated to elegance, charm, cars and bubbles.

As time passed by, Castagna became one of the dearest body shapes – today we use to call them design center –, so beloved by the Milan of Belle Epoque era, from popes on the coach to Gabriele d’Annunzio and the others famous for their “art de vivre”. The Mumm’s one needed 5 years of ageing in wine cellars – but here a F1 enduring, perfumed and perfect champagne was born. We tasted it matched with truffle. SEE THE PICTURES OF THE EVENING

* Since 2000 G.H. MUMM is the official champagne for Formula 1 podium.
