Armand de Brignac Champagne represents unmatched winemaking expertise and a true passion for the art of Champagne.
The family, owners of Champagne vineyards since 1763, craft Armand de Brignac entirely by hand with a staff of just eight people, including our father-and-son winemakers.
In 2010, Armand de Brignac’s flagship Brut Gold cuvee was rated the best Champagne in Fine Champagne magazine’s tasting of 1,000 brands. Jose Penin gave it 98/100 points (his highest ever rating for a Champagne) and Jancis Robinson, among many others, praised this Champagne.
The flagship cuvee is a singular example of the Brut Champagne tradition.
Marvellously complex and full-bodied, its bouquet is both fresh and lively, with light floral notes. On the palate, Armand de Brignac Brut Gold has a sumptuous, racy fruit character perfectly integrated with the wine’s subtle brioche accents. The Champagne’s texture is deliciously creamy, featuring great depth paired with a long, silky finish. Brut Gold is pressed from a perfectly balanced blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes.
Composition: 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier.
Residual sugar: 10g/litre.
Armand de Brignac is made exclusively from Premier Cru and Grand Cru grapes from the Montagne de Reims, Cote des Blancs and Vallee de la Marne terroirs.
Each of the cuvees is a blend of three outstanding vintage years and includes a special liqueur de dosage aged for a full year in oak casks from Burgundy and Champagne.
Armand de Brignac bottles age in a gated section of the cellars, considered among the deepest in Champagne at more than 30 metres underground.
Remuage (riddling) is carried out by hand on traditional wooden racks, taking 30-45 days. After remuage and degorgement, the bottles are aged for at least a further six months before release.
