Winemaker Notes

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.

Smooth, floral nose; rich, elegant and smooth with freshness, depth and length; lovely and showing great finesse and style, 100% Chardonnay.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
In its silver-coated bottle with the “Ace of Spades” logo, this is a crisp, mineral-driven wine, full of acidity and with a bright character on the dry side of brut. Young with layers of apple fruits, it will age. Drink now for the fruit or keep for maturity from 2018. This is one of five Champagnes by entrepreneur and rapper Jay Z under the Armand de Brignac Empire brand that is produced by the Cattier family, in Champagne since 1763.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
A sumptuous Champagne revealing wood notes of linden and acacia, along with woodland mushroom scents of shiitake, this has mineral tension and steely acidity to keep its broadness in check. Dark in tone, it requires decanting to open more fully. A mouthwatering inducement for butterbeans and white sausages.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV Blanc de Blancs (tasted from the 0.75-liter bottle) is a pure Chardonnay sourced in the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims and is a blend of the 2005, 2006 and 2008 vintages. The cuvée (Lot L107A8) opens with a clear, fresh and intense bouquet of ripe fruits and some chalky flavors. Full-bodied, terribly fresh and with good grip and tension, this is a persistent, salty-mineral and still a bit nervous Blanc de Blancs with good aging potential.

Wine Spectator
A bright blanc de blancs, with a crisp and lacy mousse, this offers notes of crunchy pear, ground ginger and lemon pith. Offers a clean-cut finish, showing minerally hints of smoke and spice. Drink now through 2020.

Decanter
This is the third addition to the range, launched around 2011. Again, it's a blend of 2009, 2010 and 2012, with 50% of the Chardonnay sourced from Cattier’s own vineyards in Montagne de Reims, and the other 50% from the Côte des Blanc - mostly from the village of Cramant. This is definitely more complex, rounder and richer than your average Blanc de Blancs. Grapefruit and white flower aromas come to mind. While opulent, it is focussed, with tremendous depth wrapped up by a backbone of acidity. A hardly noticeable dosage of 8g/l.

The Cattier family, producers of Armand de Brignac, have a rich and storied history as an elite Champagne house.

In the tiny Champagne village of Chigny les Roses, the Cattiers have owned and cultivated family vineyards since 1763. Today, the house remains independently-owned and run by the family with a staff of fewer than 20 people. Patriarch Jean-Jacques Cattier oversees the Chateau's wine production; with strictly limited annual yields, M. Cattier and his staff can ensure that the family's artisanal winemaking traditions are kept alive in each bottle.

The Cattier cellars are among the oldest and deepest in Champagne, with three styles of architecture represented in the caverns: Gothic, Renaissance, and Roman; Armand de Brignac is aged in a special, gated section of the deepest part of these cellars, 119 steps underground.

Robert Parker's Guide of French Wines rates Cattier as "excellent – among the best producers of Champagne." Centuries spent perfecting the art of Champagne are put to use in each Armand de Brignac cuvée.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Non-Vintage

View all products

A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
