Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Demi Sec (wooden gift box)
Each bottle of Armand de Brignac is coated in metal, finished with the hand application of French pewter labels and polished. Only 20 bottles can be completed per person per hour in the winery, and as a result, no two bottles are the same.
The Armand de Brignac Demi Sec was once a curiosity shared only with visitors to the maison in Rilly la Montagne, France. This unique Demi Sec was created to provide a sweeter elaboration that pairs with the most exotic of foods. The assemblage comprises 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier and is a trio of vintages; 2009, 2010 & 2012.
On the nose, there are notes of English candy, grapefruit, compote fruits, caramel, quince and brioche. To taste, the palate is abundant with crystalized citrus fruits, honey and hints of blackberries.
Each iconic, metalized 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.
The Demi Sec is ideal paired with foie gras, cheeses or lightly spiced foods. This gastronomic wine also pairs well with exotic fruits and baked desserts.
