Jay Z’s Ace of Spades Will Sell $850 Bottles of Champagne
Jay Z's Armand de Brignac--or Ace of Spades, as it's also known--champagne is pretty high-end stuff as it is, but it's about to become even more luxurious. Recently, it was revealed the next iteration of the brand's champagne will be of the ultra-exclusive variety, with only 2,233 bottles being made available in the U.S., at a cost of $850.
The new champagne, which is being called the Blanc de Noirs Assemblage Two--or, the A2--is sort of the sequel to Armand de Brignac's critically acclaimed Blanc de Noirs Assemblage--or, the A1. In an interview with Bloomberg, Armand de Brignac’s CEO Sebastien Besson's says this iteration of the beverage is appropriately priced at $850 (The A1 is $760).
While the burgeoning film producer has left the wine-making to Armand de Brignac's original team, Besson maintains the Brooklyn native's business acumen enables him to be effective running the company--even in a more hands-off role.
“Jay is a very strong businessman, certainly one that likes to understand what consumers want and here to build the business for the long term," said Besson. “He always has a few bottles on hand for a celebration, I know that for sure.”
The A2 is all set to arrive in the U.S. on April 18. Mark your calendars and get them while you can. They won't be around for long.
