Description & Technical Information
-
At the dawn of the 21st century, Jean-Jacques Cattier and his son, Alexandre Cattier, decided to create a unique and prestigious champagne. Ace of Spades Brut Gold, the first edition of Armand De Brignac champagne was unveiled in 2006. That same year, the appearance of an Armand De Brignac Ace of Spades Brut Gold bottle in one of Shawn Carter's (famously known as Jay-Z) music videos marked the starting point of this wine's unprecedented ascension. In 2014, Shawn Carter bought the Armand De Brignac brand. In 2021, he sold 50% of the shares to Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy.

Armand de Brignac Rosé was introduced soon after the Gold, and was created as a unique expression showcasing a distinct wine-like quality. The Armand de Brignac Rosé is crafted by adding 15% of still red wine to the final blend. This Pinot Noir is harvested from old vines that produce fruit with great flavour intensity. This provides a deeper texture to the champagne and richer red fruit nuances.

Crafted from some of the best plots in the Montagne de Reims, Armand de Brignac Rosé is a blend of wines from 2009, 2010 and 2012. It owes its pink colour and red fruit intensity to a small portion of still pinot noir.

Weather: The 2012 weather has been hallmarked by many as very challenging but has created some stunning Champagne. Relatively low yields due to various weather conditions throughout the year. The winter months brought some frosts and hail which damaged the early stages of bud burst. August and September were very warm and this helped rescue and give the grapes a stunning maturity.

Simon Field MW
“A confident copper blush and an immediately seductive nose of soft spice, red currants and sweet almond. The blend here is dominated by the Pinots, with 50% Noir and 40% Meunier leaving only a whisper of elegant Chardonnay. The three contributory vintages in question are 2013, 2014 and 2015, youthful therefore, yet the wine does not lack for depth and complexity. A beguiling almost savoury depth is immediately evident, courtesy in no small measure to the quality of the red wine, 15% added as Pinot Noir from exceptionally old vines in the village of Ludes. Old vines and a young wine; wisdom, depth and youthful energy in this instance make up a winning combination”

Stephan Reinhardt
“The Armand de Brignac NV Brut Rosé is an intense salmon colored blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay sourced in the Montage de Reims, Côte des Blancs and Valée de la Marne and comprises the vintages of 2009, 2010 and 2012. The bouquet is intensely fruity yet clear, fine and well-defined. Full-bodied, round, vinous and elegant on the palate, this cuvée reveals a grippy mineral freshness and lingering structure. Persistent finish. Powerful yet pure. The cooler the better.”
