Since its discovery in the 17th century by Benedictine monk Dom Pérignon, for 350 years winemakers have sought to perfect the art that is Champagne. After almost a century and the constant pursuit of perfection by five generations of the Devavry family from the village of Champillon…
We have a result that is truly exquisite - The Champagne is CARBON.
''To those who may find the bottle surprising, I must say that the most remarkable aspects are hidden inside, eagerly awaiting the chance to dazzle our palates.''

CARBON Champagne is the official supplier to Formula 1. The champagne bottles are coated with the same type of carbon fibre used in the manufacture of the Formula 1 cars. Each bottle comes wrapped in carbon cloth; a process that took four years to develop and which requires a master craftsman a full week for each bottle and 21 highly precise steps to complete.
Alexandre Mea, CEO of Champagne Carbon said:
“The partnership between Champagne Carbon and Formula 1 is, for us, the perfect fusion of ideas. We share a similar story – of great heritage, the constant pursuit of perfection and a relentless desire to innovate. My family has been involved in making champagne for almost two centuries and has been a producer since 1920, around the same time that the first true golden era of Grand Prix racing was beginning. Since then we have always sought to be different, to set new standards and to chase the dream of creating the finest champagnes possible. At Carbon, we are wine makers first and foremost, and we blend a passion for exceptional wine making using traditional skills with cutting-edge materials processes to create something truly original. For me, this has great symmetry with Formula 1.

Mode De Vie CARBON's CEO - Matt Valentine said:
The art of producing Champagne cannot be undertaken lightly. It requires premium quality grapes: Grand Cru Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, Grand Cru Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims, and Premier Cru Pinot Meunier from the Marne Valley.
