Armand de Brignac, Brut Gold en magnum NV

RRP £300

The very first of the Armand de Brignacs, first released in 2006 with one-third each of the three grapes. Very fine fresh aromas of apricot and brioche with a creamy intensity. The palate is beautifully concentrated with zippy citrus flavours, honey and a smooth toastiness. It’s dry, with minimum dosage and very low alcohol, but it has such tension and intensity and a persistence that goes on for minutes on end, aided by washes of sweet juice.

Price per bottle.
