    Shellfish carpaccio, sashimis & grilled sea bass

The Story

The first single varietal from Armand de Brignac, this 100% Chardonnay is crafted with fruit sourced from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terriors of Champagne. Aged for almost six years in the cellars in France, this assemblage is a trio of vintages; 2006, 2008 & 2009.

 

A sophisticated nose that at first reveals hints of green apple, vanilla, coconut and freshly baked biscuits. After some time in the glass, it opens to notes of fresh cut lillies and a touch of minerality. Beautiful paired with carpaccio of shellfish or scallops, sashimi, grilled sea bass or a light cheese.

NV (10's)

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 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. 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.

Inside Information

Armand de Brignac Blanc de Blancs is pressed from an exclusive selection of white Chardonnay from famed Grand Cru villages including Cramant, Avize, and Oger.

The result of uncompromising insistence on grape and vintage perfection, our Blanc de Blancs is at the pinnacle of the style, and rates as one of the most remarkable Champagnes ever created – as well as one of the rarest. Our Blanc de Blancs comprises no more than 5% of our small annual production.

This beautiful pale-gold 100% Chardonnay Champagne has a light, clear bouquet possessed of youthful fruit notes and floral accents. The structure of the wine is delicate and light; the palate is dry, ethereal and complex. Our Blanc de Blancs is bottled in a platinum bottle with matching antique silver labels and is an experience of ultimate luxury.
