We’re proud to report some truly amazing news from the recent festivities surrounding the Monaco Grand Prix. Over the weekend, Monaco’s Billionaire Club – created by Flavio Briatore and Samy Sass – sold one of our incredible Armand de Brignac Dynastie collections for a record € 350,000! The Dynastie, which encompasses one of each available size of our flagship Brut Gold cuvee, includes nine bottles, from our standard 750ml bouteille all the way up to our record-breaking 30L “Midas.” The Dynastie is equivalent to 109 regular-sized bottles of Champagne and is the most extensive – and perhaps most expensive – listing of Champagne ever offered!
The buyer, a British entrepreneur and business advisor to the ultra-wealthy, was delivered the Dynastie by a procession of 12 wait-staffers, who carried in the nine bottles in a seemingly endless parade of gold; the Midas alone required four men to carry it to the buyer’s table in one of our giant golden “Roman Litter” buckets.
Watch a video of the procession here (from the Daily Mail): http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2332675/British-millionaire-spends-330-000-single-round-champagne--needed-12-staff-help-serve-it.html

We were given the accolade by Fine Champagne magazine, one of the only publications in the world exclusively devoted to Champagne and boasting Master of Wine Essi Avellan on its editorial board. In Fine’s blind taste-test of hundreds of Champagne brands, Armand de Brignac was famously named the world’s top cuvée.
Today, the effects of this incredible honor are still being felt worldwide. In their most recent issue, the UK-based magazine The Drinks Business devoted an article and lovely accompanying photo to Armand de Brignac and the impact of being rated No.1 by a respected publication.
Enjoy the article!

Avenue – Manhattan’s oldest society magazine, and one of the first in the U.S. – agrees.

We are happy to share with you yet another tremendous endorsement of Armand de Brignac Champagne – this time by the internationally renowned restaurant, hospitality, and wine guide Gayot. The guide selected Armand de Brignac Brut Gold as the first in their list of Top 10 Prestige “Tete de Cuvee” Champagnes. Gayot’s glowing review notes that the luxurious bottle “complements its contents,” and describes the 100% Grand and Premier Cru Armand de Brignac Champagne inside as “complex and full bodied, revealing lush apple and melon flavors with a touch of brioche.” Santé!
Gayot, founded by famed French restaurant critic Andre Gayot, is considered comparable to the Michelin Guide - this wonderful review proves once more why Armand de Brignac has become the prestige cuveé of choice for gifting and celebrations around the world.
