Learn about Champagne Armand de Brignac – the producer of Ace of Spades Champagne –
History of Armand de Brignac
Known popularly as the “Ace of Spades”, Armand de Brignac was founded in 1763 by the Cattier family in a tiny Champagne village in the Montagne de Reims. Today, the house remains independently owned and run by the family with a staff of less than 20 people. Patriarch Jean-Jacques Cattier oversees the Chateau’s wine production; with strictly limited annual yields, Cattier and his staff can ensure that the family’s artisanal winemaking traditions are kept alive in each bottle of Ace of Spades champagne.
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 Ace of Spades champagne is aged in a special, gated section of the deepest part of these cellars, 119 steps underground.
Critical Acclaim for Armand de Brignac
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.
Armand de Brignac Brut Gold
The Ace of Spades Brut Gold is the Armand de Brignac’s first release and most iconic cuvée. Rich with the old-world tradition of champagne blending, it is a trio of vintages from some of the most lauded terroirs of the region, resulting in a cuvée expressing vibrant and fresh fruit character with a soft texture.
