Growing Conditions

DVX, our prestigious tête de cuvée, honors the late
Guy Devaux, founding winemaker of Mumm Napa.
The grapes for DVX come from a half-dozen of our
very best vineyard sources. Only 7 lots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir
were selected for the final 2007 DVX blend


Twenty-one percent of the wine volume was barrel
fermented and aged to add depth and spiciness. Ten
percent of the blend completed Malolactic fermentation
for a round and creamy mid-palate structure.


The blend
was aged on the yeasts six years in the bottle, adding
creaminess and soft notes and flavors. The wine was
disgorged as a brut style and aged another six months
on the cork before release.

Food Pairing

Perfect on its own as an evening starter, it
will also be a perfect match for a wide selection of
foods, from Italian dishes to poultry.
