Bugatti and Champagne Carbon toast their partnership with the reveal of the exclusive La Bouteille Noire
The Luxury Channel were delighted to attend the unveiling of this one-of-a-kind La Bouteille Noire – the latest collaboration between Bugatti and Champagne Carbon. This tailor-made creation was handcrafted to represent the perfect form and finish, inspired by one of Bugatti’s most legendary historic models, the Type 57 SC Atlantic. Certainly the most exclusive bottle you will ever see in a wine cellar.
The 15-litre carbon fibre bottle is the result of 150 hours of craftsmanship involving 37 individual steps, while the case itself is a masterpiece, featuring 314 individual sheets of prepreg carbon fibre – exactly like the materials used in Bugatti’s line-up of advanced hyper sports cars. The cutting-edge technology within includes an automatic solid-state thermodynamic cooling cell – normally found in orbiting satellites – together with 14 high-end fans which circulate cool air within the case.In 2019, Bugatti revealed the ultimate incarnation of its no-compromises approach to the hyper sports car, with La Voiture Noire.
The case opens and closes at the push of a stainless-steel button, bathed in a gentle blue light. The doors themselves are trimmed with laser-cut aluminium, mimicking the central fin of the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. As the doors gently unfold, another automatic system releases the neck of the bottle, which is secured when the case is closed.
The Champagne itself is a 2000 Vintage blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir from Champagne Carbon, characterised by rich notes of vegetables, pepper and white fruits – the result of the finest Grands Crus that the Champagne vineyards offer. This is for sure one of the most exclusive bottles that has ever been produced!
