B.A.R. Posted June 25, 2012 Share Posted June 25, 2012 (edited) Now, I know a little bit about Champagne but am by no means an expert. So when I read that the Miami Heat celebrated their championship with a 15L bottle of Ace of Spades Champagne that costs $75,000, I thought I had mis-read something. Then I read that someone named Drake spent $40k in a club here in DC recently, and the tab included a bottle of Ace of Spades? So I ask, what the hell is Ace of Spades? I have never heard of Champagne Armand de Brignac (but that doesn’t mean anything). It’s name certainly does not sound French and the bottle looks just awful. Can this apparent NV bottling of Grand Cru Blanc de Blanc really be the most expensive tete de cuvee on the market? I won’t argue the merits of it’s pricing, but is the wine actually good? I hate to be cynical, but this wine seems to me to have been “crafted” by a marketing company and someone is making a ton of money off it. ETA- I can't seem to control my fonts.
