Armand de Brignac Blanc de Blanc Champagne France
Bottle Size: 750ml
This 100% Chardonnay is crafted with fruit sourced from traditional Chardonnay territory, the Côte des Blancs. However, almost half of the blend is from Chardonnay sourced from Montagne de Reims, which provides suppleness, roundness and lightness, giving even greater potential for aging. The resulting Blanc de Blancs has a delicate fruit character combined with a unique power and structure. The 100% Chardonnay assemblage, comprises a trio of vintages; 2009, 2010 & 2012.
The first aromas of lightly buttered, baked pastry are followed by notes of pear, hazelnut and a hint of gingerbread. On the palate, flavors of exotic fruits such as guava, gooseberry and peach are complemented by sweet spice notes of cinnamon and vanilla. Fresh, mineral finish.
This Blanc de Blancs is beautiful paired with carpaccio of shellfish or scallops, sashimi, grilled sea bass or a light cheese. Drinking beautifully now or can be rested under ideal cellaring conditions, until 2036.
Each iconic, metalized bottle is finished by hand, with the application of French pewter labels, polished, and housed in a wooden lacquered gift box, ensuring every single bottle is unique. Champagne Armand de Brignac Blanc de Blancs makes for a timeless keepsake and a truly exceptional addition to a serious wine collection.
