Welcome to The Bridal Circle blog.
Known to many as the “Ace of Spades,” Armand de Brignac champagne indeed proves that it trumps all other luxury champagnes on the market. For its delicious, award-winning taste, absolutely, but also for its haute couture bottle design. True works of art, the stunning look of Armand’s pretty pink and gold metallic bottles are fabulous for today’s stylish weddings.
The entire champagne-production process is lead by Jean-Jacques Cattier and his son, Alexandre Cattier, along with only eight others, from grape to bottle to glass through traditional hand labor-intensive methods. The Cattier family has owned and cultivated vineyards in the prestigious Montagne de Reims terroir of the French Champagne region since 1763, taking every care and precaution to ensure that each bottle is made to perfection. And therein lies their long-standing family tradition, as well as the secret to their superior and unmatched champagne quality. The Champagne counts among its accolades a score of 98 (out of 100) points from world-renowned wine critic José Peñín, a glowing review from UK critic Jancis Robinson, and has now been ranked #1 among the world’s best Champagnes by FINE Champagne magazine. Trust us, you’ll taste the Cattiers’ love and care of the grapes in every glass of these delicious bubbles.
Now, let’s talk about those gorgeous bottles! Inspired by famed French fashion designer André Courrèges, each metallic bottle is crafted entirely by hand, featuring two Ace of Spades insignias and four hand-applied pewter labels. The bottle is then housed in a black wooden case embossed with the champagne’s royal crest. Each box is lined in velvet and fitted with an engraved nameplate, reflecting the splendor and grand style of the French fashion world and perfectly housing the elegant champagne within. So, think about it. Wouldn’t a bottle of Armand de Brignac be a lovely wedding gift? Perhaps the bridesmaids could bring a bottle or two (maybe three) to the bridal suite to enjoy as everyone gets their hair and makeup done?
But if you’re looking to serve Armand de Brignac to all of your wedding guests, you should know they offer three different types to choose from including the Brut Gold, a Rosé, and a Blanc de Blancs. All will delight your guests’ taste buds, but we happen to LOVE the Rosé. There is no doubt that a wedding celebration simply wouldn’t be the same without everyone raising a glass of champagne to toast the newlyweds. It’s the ultimate symbol of luxury and celebration worldwide.
