This very small production 100% Chardonnay cuvée is crafted from fruit sourced from traditional Chardonnay territory, the Côte des Blancs, and almost half of the blend is from the lauded Montagne de Reims. This unique assemblage delivers both minerality, suppleness, roundness and lightness from the Montagne de Reims terroir, providing even greater potential for aging.

The prestige cuvées of Champagne Armand de Brignac are crafted by the Cattier family, 13th Century Champagne growers, in the village of Rilly-la-Montagne in the Montagne de Reims. Led today by patriarch, Jean-Jacques and his son, Alexandre, the Cattiers have owned and cultivated family vineyards since 1763. Drawing on more than 250 years experience in the region, it was their goal to attain a level of quality they had never achieved before. Aiming to break conventions, the Cattiers introduced these prestige Armand de Brignac Champagnes, in the now iconic metalized bottles with French pewter labels.
To this end, Armand de Brignac was born in 2006
Since 2014, under new ownership, exceptional attention to every detail and long term outlook has been determined to produce the finest of all Champagnes. Only the finest grapes from premier and Grand Cru vineyards are used with sites in Avize, Verzenay, Bouzy, Rilly-la-Montagne, Chigny-les- Roses and Ludes. Only the first and finest portion of the pressing is used to ensure the highest possible quality. Each step of the process, from vineyard to disgorgement is handled by only 18
people. Without volume constraints, no level of detail is undervalued.

Lightly buttered, baked pastry notes are followed by aromas of pear, hazelnut and a hint of gingerbread. On the palate, flavours of guava, gooseberry and peach are complemented by sweet spices and a fresh mineral finish.

The Armand de Brignac Blanc de Blancs reveals so much about the unique terroir of Champagne. The 100% Chardonnay cuvée is crafted from fruit sourced from both the traditional Chardonnay territory, the Côte des Blancs, and almost half of the blend from Chardonnay sourced from Montagne de Reims. The resulting Blanc de Blancs has a powerful acidity and lightness, elegantly balanced with suppleness and roundness.
