Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Brut Gold Champagne, price & availability varies on Drizly

Armand de Brignac Champagne

Armand de Brignac

A bottle of Champagne is de rigueur for the occasion, but if you want to splurge, a bottle of Armande de Brignac Ace of Spades will set you back about $300 and (according to experts) be worth every penny. It receives high scores across the board, and it comes in a golden bottle to boot. Would you expect any less from a label that’s owned by Jay-Z? This is probably what Beyoncé’s drinking on Valentine’s Day—and maybe Reese Witherspoon too.Buy Now
