This New Year’s top champagne story is the offer of the 30L Armand de Briganc Midas Champagne bottle for a staggering $100,000 at Las Vegas’ prime party zone, XS at the Encore. It was offered on New Year’s Eve, but it wasn’t sold until the next night when UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez hosted his UFC 125 after-party.
Two strong men were employed to carry the 80-pound bottle over to the high roller’s table. A 30l bottle of Armand de Brignac (also known as Ace of Spades) is equivalent to 40 regular sized bottles of the exclusive bubbly. The Armand de Brignac is renowned for its unmatched winemaking expertise produced by Cattier Champagne. The Cattier family has a rich history dating back to 1773 and roots from a French village, Chigny-les-Roses. It signature Ace of Spades is its identification.
