Armand de Brignac best champagne in the world? Says FINE Champagne magazine? Jay-Z videos? Please tell me this is just marketing BS!

I love this:

The original "de Brignac" name was registered by the Cattier family in "the late 1940s or early 50s", according to Jean-Jacques Cattier. It was chosen at that time by his mother, who had been reading a novel featuring a character named de Brignac.In naming the new Champagne, Cattier states those involved "came up with Armand, it sounded kind of noble".
