"Armand de Brignac Brut Gold — our flagship cuveé — is a singular example of the Brut Champagne tradition. Marvelously complex and full-bodied, its bouquet is both fresh and lively, with light floral notes. On the palate, our Brut Gold has a sumptuous, racy fruit character perfectly integrated with the wine's subtle brioche accents. The Champagne's texture is deliciously creamy, with great depth paired with a long, silky finish. Our Brut Gold is pressed from a perfectly balanced blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier wine." —winemaker
"The refinement of the bubbles and impeccable pale color brought James Bond to mind for one taster, 'the new Bond, the blond Bond.' The comment generated a flurry of critical reviews from the panelists: 'This is more Timothy Dalton: polished, looks good, but doesn't have a lot to say.' 'This is more like Gregory Peck: It has nothing to prove.' 'Burt Lancaster in A Wild Thing.' 'Clooney on ER before he got polished...' This is a bold and powerful wine that holds its balance. Driven by scents of brioche and chalk, along with intense acidity, it should develop well with several years of bottle age." —Wine & Spirits Magazine

"Bright gold with a strong bead. Highly perfumed bouquet displays pear, nectarine, honeysuckle and sweet butter, plus an undercurrent of spice, ginger and lemon pith adding energy. Fleshy pit fruit and soft citrus flavors provide very good palate coverage and offer pungent spice and candied floral qualities on the back end. Nervy minerality adds lift and cut to the long, gently smoky and subtly sweet finish, which leaves candied orange peel and floral notes behind." —Vinous
