Cattier Production

Ace of Spades Gold is sold under the Armand de Brignac name by the Cattier champagne house. Cattier uses the méthode champenoise for their Armand de Brignac brut champagne production. The brut is generally composed of approximate equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Only first press juice is used and all processing including riddling and disgorgement is done by hand. The traditional Coquart press is still used. Wine from three distinguished vintages are used in the final blend. 'Ace of Spades Gold' is aged in cellars for four or five years. Riddling takes place over approximately 30 to 45 days. The dosage is a special family formula that is barrel aged for 9 or more months. The pewter labels are all hand made. The House is owned by the Cattier family in the Montagne de Reims region of Champagne.
