Armand de Brignac
Armand de Brignac Ace Of Spades Champagne Brut
Since November 2014, Armand de Brignac has been theChampagne brand of rapper and music producer JAY-Z. The five non-vintage cuvees, which are sold in opaque metallic bottles and at absolutely crazy prices, are produced by father and son Jean-Jacques and Alexandre Cattier from Champagne Cattier who started releasing de Brignac in 2006. The fruit-Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay-comes from vineyards owned by the Cattier family and from growers in selected villages across the region. For Armand de Brignac, colloquially known as ”Ace of Spades,” only the tete de cuvee of the press is used, so the very finest part. Each cuvee assembles three vintages and is dosed with matured wines aged in oak barrels. Aged for several years on the second lees, the wines are intense, powerful, well-structured and of excellent quality.
