BRUT GRAND CRU
RSRV Cuvee 4.5, the essence of five historic terroirs
A name evocative of a secret for a champagne with a coded name. The number four represents four years of aging in the Maison Mumm cellars. The number five signifies the Maison’s five historic terroirs that are all Grand Cru classified.
Terroirs & origins
The RSRV 4.5 champagne is a tribute to the prestige and diversity of five Grand Cru terroirs acquired by the Maison beginning in 1840: Pinot Noir from Verzenay, Aÿ and Bouzy, and Chardonnays from Cramant and Avize. After four years of aging in cellars, an aromatic sculpture is unveiled.
- 60% Pinot Noir Grand Cru
- 40% Chardonnay Grand Cru
Everything is well balanced: the fresh and fruity aromas of Verzenay Pinot Noir, the power and vinosity of Pinot Noirs from Aÿ and Bouzy, followed by the delicate citrus notes of Cramant Chardonnay that are revitalized by Avize Chardonnay. It is a tribute to the richness of Maison’s terroirs. Initially, each vineyard is distinctive. Their grapes are pressed and vinified separately. These exceptional wines are then blended and orchestrated by the Cellar Master, by his experience and intuition, he transforms the blend into a signature champagne, an ideal chemistry that unites style and aromas equally.
“An elegant wine, with a harmonious complexity, which emanates power, freshness and richness.”

Delicately golden brown
Light yellow sprinkled with golden reflections. A fine and delicate effervescence.
Fresh notes of yellow and white fruits gradually give way to aromas of fruit marmalade, honey, nougat and vanilla. This rich and complex nose is completed with a hint of roasting and mocha.
An attack that’s frank and lively that progressively evolves around a beautiful roundness.

The wines that make up the RSRV 4.5 champagne age in carefully selected oak barrels so that they benefit from the slow process of micro-oxygenation. They were elaborated this way so that they develop woody notes with subtle aromas of vanilla.
