Armand de Brignac Rosé is a beautiful salmon-hued wine produced in the traditional, old-world style, from grape to glass. Its bouquet is rich and pure with red fruits up front and delicately smoky grilled notes behind. The Champagne is fresh and full-bodied on the palate with aromas of fresh strawberries and blackcurrant and Armand de Brignac’s characteristic long, silky finish. The Champagne has received universal critical acclaim, including a remarkable score of 98 points from wine critic José Peñín, 4.9 out of 5 points from Champagne writer Kåre Halldén, 9 out of 10 points from critic Davor Butkovic, and many others.

Armand de Brignac is marvelously complex and full-bodied, with a bouquet that is both fresh and lively. Its sumptuous, racy fruit character is perfectly integrated with the wine’s subtle brioche accents. Its texture is deliciously creamy and the palate has great depth and impact with a long and silky finish. A superb and singular example of a Prestige Champagne.

This layered, complex wine is marked by intense varietal aromas of white, citrus and tropical fruits offset by spicy, toasty notes which are confirmed on the palate, supported by a firm structure and rich, buttery texture.
