Armand de Brignac “Ace of Spades”, Champagne, France: Trust me—I so badly did not want to fall in love with this champagne. From a distance, the flashy gold bottle and polished wood box screamed “PR Stunt”. This champagne has the brightest lush fruit notes that I have enjoyed in a champagne. It also has a creamy texture, delicate bubbles and mousse, and just a hint of brioche. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime indulgence.
