Armand de Brignac champagne, nick named “Ace of Spades”, is a prestige champagne brand that is owned by The Cattier family of France and has a history that dates backs to 1763. This champagne has won praise from many of the wine critics across the world and Armand de Brignac Brut Gold has been selected as the number one champagne in the world in a blind tasting of more than a thousand brands.
The cellars of Armand de Brignac Brut are among the oldest and deepest in the Champagne region. The Cattier family has a great history and incredible champagne house in the village of Chigny les Roses. They have owned and operated many family vineyards from 1763.
Patriarch Jean-Jacques Cattier oversees the wine production today, but with limited annual yields to make sure that the artisanal wine making tradition of the family is kept alive in each of the bottle that they make.
The cellars of Cattier use three architecture styles, namely Gothic, Roman, and Renaissance. Armand de Brignac is aged in a special and gated area of the deepest parts of the cellars and this special area is 119 steps underground. “Ace of Spades” is the only champagne that is available in a thirty liter ‘Midas’ bottle and is one of the most expensive champagne that is available in the market.
The Armand de Brignac is very complex and full-bodied. The fruity character of the drink is nicely integrated with the subtle brioche accents of the wine. The texture of the drink is creamy and delicious and the palate has great depth. The finish is long lasting and silky, making it as superb example of a prestige champagne.
Armand de Brignac Brut Gold is available in a gold bottle that was originally developed by Cattier for the fashion house of Andre Courreges. The golden bottle of Cattier also appeared at the Golden Jubilee celebration of England. All the labels for the bottles are made of real pewter and these labels are polished and applied by hand.
This prestige champagne has a high profile fan base, which includes actors like George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio, athletes Luis Figo and Roger Federer, and rapper Jay-Z. Certainly, Armand de Brignac Brut Gold would be the best champagne for Valentine’s Day.
