Bugatti and Champagne Carbon has reveal the most spectacular, hand-crafted champagne bottle and case in the world : the one-of-one, La Bouteille Noire. A carbon fiber bottle that was the result of 150 hours of work involving 37 steps holds 15 liters (4 gallons) of champagne.
The design draws inspiration from La Voiture Noire and the flowing elegance of the Type 57 SC Atlantic. With pure surfaces and clean lines, the visual flow of the hand-crafted case is entirely uninterrupted, except by the ultrafine fiber structure hidden beneath the deep glossy black surface. The hand-crafted case itself the work of Bugatti partner IXO is a masterpiece. It features 314 individual sheets of prepreg carbon fiber, exactly like the materials used in Bugatti’s line-up of advanced hyper sports cars.
Doors butterfly open at the press of a stainless steel button, and those who are thirsty will be thrilled to find that the case makes use of an automatic solid-state thermodynamic cooling cell which, together with 14 high-end fans, circulate cool air around the case to keep the champagne at perfect drinking temperature. La Bouteille Noire sits upon an illuminated vivid red base, which itself is a miniature recasting of La Voiture Noire’s elegant rear light – one flowing lit panel, with no joints. It’s recreated here by a block of sanded acrylic glass, illuminated in red LEDs, incorporating the jewel-like letters of BUGATTI over a surface of brushed natural aluminum.
“With a creation as spectacular as ‘La Bouteille Noire’ it was only right that we pair it with one of our most spectacular vintages. On this occasion, we have chosen a 2000 Vintage blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir.” Alexandre Mea, CEO, Champagne Carbon
Revealed at a private event this week at The Londoner, it will continue to be displayed within an illuminated glass box until December 1 outside The Londoner in Leicester Square. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
