Bright green apple aromas wake up the senses in this bubbly that blends primarily Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. There's a lifted white peach note in the middle and then a crisp, refreshing finish. Perfect for all your celebrations, especially at such a great price.

Roger rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

The many accolades for Mumm Napa Brut Prestige are well deserved (WE 92 & WS 90) and a fantastic value at $20. A delicious blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir results in a beautiful layering of citrus, honey, melon and a touch of strawberry. May I have another glass, please?
Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Classic NV Champagne with a bouquet of red berry and brioche that pulls through to the palate. Well balanced with a satisfying length and a energizing mousse. Consistent and reliable, invite this bottle to your next celebration. Tasted June 2014.
Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Elegant with excellent mousse, giving aromas of white blossoms, followed by delicate flavours of citrus, stone fruit, melon and biscuit. Medium-bodied, crisp acidity. Excellent mousse and finish that lingers. Perfect for your next special celebration.
Nina rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very refreshing sparkling wine!
Nice small, long lived bubbles.
Flavors of apple, bread, little sweetness of melon.
Lovely mousse, lingering finish.
Mary rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This wine is floral with white blossoms on the nose along with peaches, green apple, lemon peel, and white cherries. The mouth is creamy with soft bubbles that dissipate fairly quickly. Though not overly complex and not much acidity on the finish, this is a bright and fruit forward (think apple cider) easy drinking wine that is a great everyday sipper for its price point. Drink alone as an aperitif, or with hors d’oeuvres or with brunch.
Taylor rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Sour apple squirted with lime and dipped in sweet honey. Slightly earthy but mostly the fruit reigns. The best deal I found. Their Blanc de Blancs is also fantastic. $19.
Mumm Napa Brut Prestige opens with gorgeous layered white blossom aromas, followed by creamy vanilla, citrus, stone fruit and melon. Yeast aging contributes subtle aged flavours of biscuit, bread dough, white blossoms and mocha, and layers of creamy texture. The wine is medium-bodied, with elegant acidity, crisp structure, excellent mousse and a rich, lingering finish.
