BUGATTI and Champagne Carbon are not only united by their common homeland, the French 'Grand Est' region. As avant-gardists in their respective industries, they translate the knowledge and know-how accumulated over the many years of their proud history into an innovative present and future. The striving for perfection and the constant overcoming of one's own limits is always at the center of all actions. “At the crossroads of tradition and modernity, of excellence and technology, BUGATTI never compromises. We feel the same way about our champagne,” explains Alexandre Mea, CEO of Champagne Carbon. But it wouldn’t truly be BUGATTI if it weren’t customizable. For the first time ever, customers can now create and personalize three elements: the BUGATTI-inspired sculptural case, the hand-crafted carbon fiber bottle and the finest champagne that rests within.
Consisting of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir, ‘ƎB.01’ has been created on time for the celebration of Bugatti’s 110th anniversary. Champagne Carbon invested its unparalleled expertise, a lot of time and the utmost precision in the creation of this unique, high-quality cuvée Champagne. Only grapes from the most distinguished terroirs of Champagne were used. The vintage of this exclusive Champagne was a very bright one: 2002 saw Bugatti working at full speed on its modern era revival and the Veyron, while extraordinarily in the Grand Est region, it had the perfect weather conditions for good ripeness and Champagne flavour concentration. This particular vintage has just been released from the Carbon wine cellar at the optimum maturity.
