Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Blanc de Blanc (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.

Armand de Brignac Blanc de Blancs is an extraordinary cuvee, a prestige champagne based on the Brut Gold which was elected best champagne in the world in 2010.
This 100% Chardonnay, from some of the best parcels in the region, stands out by its freshness and its subtle and nuanced minerality.
Proposed in the famous bottle designed by Courrèges, and protected by a magnificent presentation box of black lacquered wood decorated with the Armand de Brignac symbol, this cuvee is a collector’s item.
With its mineral and chalky accents it is full of vivacity. Finely structured, its finesse balances the restrained power of the palate to create a perfect harmony.
Armand de Brignac Blanc de Blancs is astonishingly fresh and its aromatic intensity impresses with its persistence right up to the magnificent finish. A finish of clean purity.
