Armand de Brignac Gold Brut Champagne cl 75
Cattier’s champagne that seduced the American jet set. It first debuted in late 2006 produced by the Cattier family, which has been in the market since 1763 and has owned vineyards in champagne for 10 generations.
It is a multi cuvée, that is, a blend of the best 3 vintages of the last decade. Grapes are selected exclusively from the best Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards.
Interestingly, it is an Armand de Brignac Brut with no vintage, which is rather unusual for a prestigious cuvèe. It allows the expression of the best style of the champenoise tradition, but above all that consistency from year to year that would be impossible to achieve with a millésimé.
A selection of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier grapes from 20 hectares of estate vineyards are used and pressed in the classic coquard all’essemblage , which equally shares 33% of the three cèpage, selecting the Maison’s best vins de riserv, as old as 10 years. The wine rests on the lees for 36 months, at the end of which remuage and degorgement, both by hand, dosage is 10g/liter, and the liqueur wine is vinified and barrel aged
