Champagne Carbon, The Perfect Bottle for All Occasions
We had the amazing opportunity to speak with Rohan James, the Sales Director and UK Ambassador for Champagne Carbon, and we're excited to share exactly why this Champagne house is so special!
Where it all began...
Created and founded by Alexandre Méa the brand was conceived in 2011. He is the 5th heir to the Méa-Devavry family who has been winegrowing and producing champagne for almost a century. Establishing the perfect union of tradition and modernity, Champagne Carbon is a pioneer Champagne house. Striving to promote the excellence of French craftsmanship, each bottle from the Attraction Series is handcrafted and goes through a 38 step process to create the carbon fibre exterior stands as the signature of the house.
Philippe Jamesse, former head sommelier of 2 Michelin starred restaurant le Domaine des Crayères curated the tasting notes at the inception of the brand. According to him the carbon that covers the bottles merges with the carbon dioxide of the champagne bubbles, creates an interaction which nourishes and sharpens the wine. This particular alchemy is the essence of Champagne Carbon, their DNA.
For a first time buyer, or you’re looking to choose your champagne for December festivities, this is Rohan’s suggestion is to start with, which was the first Cuvée to be conceived by the House.
