Armand de Brignac Champagne is the life’s work of the Cattier family, 13th-generation Champagne growers who have worked the land in the region for more than 250 years. Based in the tiny village of Rilly la Montagne, only the very best fruit of three distinct vintages are blended inside each bottle of the prestige cuvées. The iconic metallic bottles rest for years in the cellars, that are some of the deepest in the region at more than 100 steps below the surface. Still independently owned, the Champagne house employs fewer than 20 people to produce its award-winning Champagne – the Armand de Brignac Brut Gold was voted No. 1 Champagne in the world in 2010 – ensuring the family’s artisanal winemaking traditions are present in every bottle. Each distinctive bottle is finished by hand with the application of its signature pewter labels and every surface polished; as a result, no two bottles are quite the same. This celebrated range of prestige Champagnes is ever-present in the stockpiles of collectors, connoisseurs and seasoned gourmands.
