ARMAND DE BRIGNAC

Champagne Armand de Brignac is a range of prestige cuvées that offer uncompromising quality and taste, crafted by 11th generation Champagne growers, the Cattier family. Drawing upon more than 250 years of experience in the region, the father and son winemaking team dedicate intense attention to detail in the creation of the Armand de Brignac Champagnes.

They source fruit from the vineyards showing the highest quality of the harvest, taking solely the first and freshest portion of the cuvée press and blending a unique trio of vintages for each assemblage. Each metalised bottle is finished by hand with the application of French pewter labels, polished and housed in a wooden lacquered gift box, ensuring every single bottle is unique.

A small and highly skilled team of just 14 people touch a bottle of Armand de Brignac, from pressing the fruit to the bottle’s departure from the cellars in France.

TASTING REVIEWS & SCORES

Jancis Robinson October 2015, 17 Points

This comes in a gold metallic bottle. Disgorged June 2015. 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier. Based on 2010 with 2009 and 2008. Mainly premiers and grands crus but no claim is made on the label. Dosage 9-10 g/l. 

Quite deep straw. Very steady tiny bead. Complete, well balanced nose with a floral note. A tiny bit of astringency and great verve. Not quite as defiantly dry as the Blanc de Blancs. Some delicacy on the finish but it’s quite powerful on the mid palate. .

Producer tasting note

To taste, the Armand de Brignac Gold Brut reveals peach, apricot and red berry aromas, followed by crystalised citrus, orange blossom and hints of brioche.

The palate is rich with cherries, exotic fruits and a touch of lemon, vanilla and honey.

The mouth feel is soft and creamy, with a hint of toastiness, from the unique Armand de Brignac dosage which is aged for one year in French oak barrels.
