Armand de Brignac Champagne
Armand de Brignac Champagne is a prestige Champagne brand owned by the Cattier family. The family has a rich history as an elite Champagne house in the tiny village of Chigny les Roses as they have owned and cultivated family vineyards since 1763. Today, Patriarch Jean-Jacques Cattier oversees the Chateau's wine production with strictly limited annual yields, ensuring that the family's artisanal winemaking traditions are kept alive in each bottle.
The Cattier cellars are among the deepest and oldest in the Champagne region and are classified by the Comité Interprofessional du Vin de Champagne and the Institut National des Appellations d'Origine. They have three styles of architecture represented in the caverns: Gothic, Renaissance, and Roman. Armand de Brignac is aged in a special, gated section of the deepest part of these cellars, 119 steps underground.
Centuries spent perfecting the art of Champagne are put to use in each Armand de Brignac cuvée. Armand de Brignac Champagne won praise from wine critics and connoisseurs around the globe: Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Brut Gold was voted No.1 Champagne in the world in a blind tasting of 1,000 brands in 2010. Armand de Brignac Champagne was also awarded No.1 Blanc de Noirs Champagne in the world in 2016. Ace of Spades Champagne is available in large Champagne bottles too.
A GOLDEN BOTTLE
Each bottle of Armand de Brignac is coated in metal, finished with the hand application of French pewter labels and polished. Only 20 bottles can be completed per person per hour in the winery, and as a result, no two bottles are the same. Armand de Brignac has the most extensive collection of large format bottles of any prestige champagne house, from its 1.5L magnum to the highly rare, and made only by special order, 30L Midas.
