Armand de Brignac Brut Gold stands as a testament to the expertise of the Maison. It's a carefully curated blend, pulling from pinot noir (40%), chardonnay (40%), and meunier (20%) grapes harvested across three distinct vintages. These selections are made from the cream of the crop, emanating from the esteemed crus villages located in the heart of Montagne de Reims.
What sets the Brut Gold apart is the Maison's dedication to perfecting every detail. Their unique dosage, aged meticulously for a year in French oak barrels, introduces an unparalleled toastiness and a luxurious, creamy texture to the champagne. This meticulous process and commitment to quality result in champagnes that are both rich and nuanced, characterized by subtle hints of vanilla, toasted notes, and a vibrant acidity.
The Maison's deep roots in the Champagne region, having owned vineyards in Montagne de Reims for over two and a half centuries, has enabled them to cultivate a profound legacy. Spread across a sprawling 81.5 acres (33 hectares) of vine-rich land, their vineyards grace some of the region’s premier crus villages - Rilly-la-Montagne, Chigny-les-Roses, and Ludes. The dominance of pinot noir in these plantations bestows the wines with vibrant red fruit undertones and a robust structure.
Producing a mere 100,000 bottles annually, Armand de Brignac Brut Gold is the pinnacle of exclusivity. Each bottle is a tribute to the season's first-press juice, further elevated by blending with two other distinguished vintages.
In every sip of Armand de Brignac Brut Gold, one experiences the culmination of centuries of tradition, innovation, and mastery.
Tasting Note by Armand De Brignac Champagne:
Peach, apricot and red berry aromas are followed by crystalized citrus, orange blossom and hints of brioche. The palate is rich with cherries, exotic fruits and a touch of lemon, vanilla and honey. The mouth feel is soft and creamy, with a hint of toastiness, from the unique Armand de Brignac dosage which is aged for one year in French oak barrels.
