This autumn, Armand de Brignac will be introducing two new varietals to its collection of luxury champagnes – Armand de Brignac Blanc de Noirs and Armand de Brignac Demi Sec.
Their artisanal production process is overseen by a select group of eight people exclusively dedicated to creating the three signature cuveés of Armand de Brignac, a house established by the Cattier family over 250 years ago.
Armand de Brignac Blanc de Noirs is made with 100% Pinot Noir grapes. After releasing its flagship cuvee, Brut Gold, the Cattier family and winemakers decided there was an opportunity to deliver the ultimate statement of their winemaking expertise and style. Blanc de Noir is exceptionally refined and its food pairing versatility makes it an special experience for fine food connoisseurs.
Armand de Brignac Demi Sec is an elegant expression of Demi Sec, blended with 40% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier, and 40% Chardonnay grapes. While many in the wine industry disregard Demi Sec, the Cattier family wanted to prove that the varietal could be exceptional. To avoid heavy sweetness, the winemakers focused on keeping the dosage low, with the final dosage 34 gr/L, and used the oldest Armand wines available in the cellars.
Armand de Brignac Blanc de Noir RRP: US$759.99 and Armand de Brignac Demi Sec RRP: US$359.99.
