Armand de Brignac
The World's Number One Champagne? At a recent tasting conducted by the influential 'Fine Champagne' magazine - from 1,000 Champagnes blind-tasted - Armand de Brignac was ranked number one.
The World’s Only Entirely Handmade Luxury Cuvée- The comparatively tiny size of the Chateau and staff who prepare Armand de Brignac emphasizes the unique, personal nature of each bottle and the family touch of having so few people involved, with chateau patriarch Jean-Jacques and his son Alexandre Cattier directly responsible.
A total of just 8 people are involved in making Armand de Brignac The Cattier family have possessed vineyards in Champagne since 1763. Every aspect of production is carefully handcrafted with the utmost care and respect paid to the quality of the fruit sourced soley from premier and grand cru vineyards to ensure the finest cuvee.
Each of the wines produced are considered prestige releases and are all multi-vintage, consisting of three distinct years in each blend. Adopted and championed by many celebrities and rap stars, it has turned a number of heads in it's brief history. The Brut Gold (Ace of Spades) was first launched in 2006, with the Rose and Blanc de Blancs following in 2008.
