Armand de Brignac
Armand de Brignac is in Chigny les Roses, in France’s Champagne region. It has been owned and operated by the Cattier family since the 18th century and remains an independent producer. It is also notable for its stylish metallic-looking bottles, which are decorated with an Ace of Spades emblem at a single site in France’s Cognac region. Armand de Brignac says the bottles are partly an homage to France’s fashion industry and that they were originally inspired by the French designer Andre Courreges. The estate makes several styles of Champagne using only the legally allowable grapes, which are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
