Armand de Brignac is a French brand of champagne made by the Cattier family, who have owned vineyards since 1625. After more than 12 generations spent in crafting fine champagnes, the Cattier family decided to set aside reserve wines for a new champagne project. The result of that work can be seen in Armand de Brignac. Known locally as the "ace of spades" thanks to its logo, this exquisite champagne was first released to the market in 2006.
Only 18 people have a hand in the production of this champagne, from picking the grapes to applying the French pewter labels by hand. The flagship cuvée from the brand is its Armand de Brignac Brut Gold. In its gorgeous gold bottle with the hand-applied label, Armand de Brignac Brut Gold rich, fruity, and complex. This trio of vintages is made up of a trio of grapes, with 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, and 20% Pinot Meunier blending into a sublime whole.
Extraordinary and elegant, this champagne will help you live the "La vie en or," the golden life. The meticulous production process ensures that only the best of the best will make it into the final product. The perfect balance achieved from the three distinct harvests of three beautiful types of grapes results in a powerful blend showcasing a unique character. Try it on its own as an aperitif or pair it with light seafood or poultry dishes.

Description of Armand de Brignac Brut Gold
Armand de Brignac Brut Gold (Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir)
Armand de Brignac is marvelously complex and full-bodied, with a bouquet that is both fresh and lively. Its sumptuous, racy fruit character is perfectly integrated with the wine's subtle brioche accents. Its texture is deliciously creamy and the palate has great depth and impact with a long and silky finish. A superb and singular example of a Prestige Champagne.
Armand contains a multi-vintage blend of the following grapes at these proportions: 33% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Menuier.
2006 marks the unveiling of Armand de Brignac in the stunning gold bottle originally developed by Cattier for the André Courrèges fashion house. Cattier's gold bottle also made an appearance at Queen Elizabeth II of England's Golden Jubilee celebration. All labels for each bottle of Armand de Brignac are made of real pewter, polished and applied by hand. Each bottle is packaged in a black embroidered velvet bag, which completes a package that speaks to the quality of the Armand de Brignac Champagne and the care taken with each step of its realization.
