Discovering a very private champagne cellar in the Marais

The private cellar Apero Champagne RSRV of Maison Mumm

Careful, to be lucky enough to taste these high-end champagnes for free, everything must stay confidential. Code name: RSRV. Created to the initiative of the venerable house of champagnes G.H.Mumm, this very select club is aimed at all those who enjoy fine bubbles. You want to be part of the inner circle? RSRV is delocalising its secret cave from the 11th to the 22nd of December at the heart of the Marais.

Partaking in the inner circle

Until now this mysterious private cellar was “reserved” for a handful of highly selected happy few. A tradition that goes back to the tradition of Maison Mumm, that was in the habit of offering its best bottles to friends of the house, annotated RSRV on the registers by the cellar master.

Today, RSRV represents five 100% Grand Cru vintages stemming from plots belonging to the house on its very best pieces of land.

Rare bubbles, accessible exclusively through a dedicated application, for the happy few you will soon be part of.

Tastings in very small committee

With this first ephemeral cellar open to all, RSRV vintages are finally making their coming out, an event. In the mood to taste these mysterious bubbles? Food pairing tastings are organized for free—sign up on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, a privileged moment granted exclusively to members of the RSRV Club, in other words to those who will be signed up on the RSRVapp or who will have made a purchase on the spot (bottle starting €39). Cheers!

Pop-up RSRV from the 11th to the 22n dof December 2019, free access from 10am to 8pm. 23, Rue du Roi de Sicile 75004 Paris. More info on
