ARMAND DE BRIGNAC GOLD

A Modern Day Prestige Cuvée, Emblematic of Tradition

Armand de Brignac Gold Brut was the first cuvée introduced to the portfolio and is the flagship. The Cattier family’s ambition during a New Year’s celebration in Chigny-les-Roses was to create the very best prestige cuvée for the 21st century, while still reflecting the rich traditions of winemaking in Champagne. It is in this way that the mastery of blending – vintages, terroirs and grape varieties – is at the essence of Armand de Brignac’s philosophy.

TASTING NOTES

Peach, apricot and red berry aromas are followed by crystalized 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.

 

CELLARING POTENTIAL

Drinking beautifully now or can be rested under ideal cellaring conditions, until 2025.

 

FOOD PAIRINGS

Ideal as an aperitif or pairs perfectly with seared scallops, roasted quail and fresh water fish.
