Discover the know-how, the history and the imprint of the Champagne house Carbon
Champagne Carbon it is first of all a passionate story between the vine, our terroirs and the desire to shake up the codes in which I grew up. Carbon represents my first entrepreneurial project. Ambition and innovation have become my two key words. As an actor of a certain evolution in Champagne, I wanted to undertake a new perspective. Seeing things in a big way, I mixed the Champagne tradition with a very distinct dry matter. Today, the different vintages are making a mark and highlighting the new era of the 21st century in Champagne. My childhood memories are precise, tradition, know-how and the desire to go further. Here is Carbon
The great champagnes bearing the name Carbon owe their excellence to the exceptional quality of their grapes. Grandson of the 5th generation of Champagne winemakers from the Devavry Champagne House, Alexandre decided to create his own Champagne House. After more than 4 years of research and development to create the most perfect bottle
A mosaic of terroirs with unique characteristics. Carbon takes care of the three grape varieties that make up Champagne. Grand Cru and Premier Cru for the Chardonnay. Marne Valley for the Pinot Noir, sharing its clay soils with the youngest, the Meunier.
Perfect mastery of traditional techniques, Carbon operates in a meticulous way, between sensitivity and passion for the beings. Each step of the winemaking process counts. The requirement of tradition throughout the process gives the wine a natural soul
The history of the Champagne House Carbon was born from the intrigue around the challenge. The main key movement is the daring movement. Daring to go off the beaten track and remain faithful to tradition is the daily exercise and challenge of Maison Carbon. Only one obvious thing emerges, that of freeing oneself from the rules to better conquer them. The Champagne House Carbon celebrates the know-how and tradition of the Champagne region, breaking out of the comfort zones and breaking the moulds. From the desire to reinterpret the rules and do things differently, innovative and surprising creations are born. Carbon is a remarkable material, a case for its elixir of sublimation. For those who think they will be surprised by the bottle, here are the most inspiring ones out of sight, and with great pleasure to surprise your palate. A contemporary, artisanal champagne that celebrates excellence and the nobility of taste.
FREEDOM AND RESTITUTION OF THE SENSES
Carbon collects distinctive traits, learning how to achieve the purest expression of our vines, grapes and soils.
First distinction, the oak barrels the bottle is in contact with the air, allowing a natural exchange and preserving the original potential of each wine.
Another distinction, in the form of a gentle rotation of the barrels. The movement is done by hand: a half or quarter turn to detach the lees from the barrel, to put them back in suspension and to feed the wine with its original sediments. This time spent by the man is called stirring.
Then, to preserve the quality of its wines Carbon remains patient. Each small bottle is stored in an adapted environment, in the greatest of silences in order to offer an unequalled potential of ageing. Thus the champagnes express themselves freely and share with you all their naturalness.
Carbon wishes to offer you a unique experience, liberating all your senses in a natural way.

Because of their avant-garde and perfectionist positioning where every detail counts, Champagne Carbon is among the greats. Each carbon fiber is handcrafted by their team, representing the perfect combination of tradition and modernity.
Using high-end technology and traditional methods, Champagne Carbon breaks the codes and changes the world of Champagne. Alexandre Méa, grandson and son of a Champagne winemaker, seems to have foreseen his future. Bold and creative, Alexandre decided not to take over the family vineyard, but to combine all his passions to found his own champagne house.
After more than 4 years of research and development to come up with the perfect carbon fiber coated bottle, Alexandre launched the Carbone Champagne House in the 2000s, using precisely the Cuvées from his grandfather's cellar. Why in Carbon? A crazy challenge, launched by himself, passionate about motorsports, design and high technology. What motivates his work is the creation of an object rather than a simple bottle. A different champagne that combines tradition and futurism with UFO notes that make this tasting experience so unique.
The Champagne of the Méa family
The Méa-Devavry family runs the 15 hectare estate with passion. What distinguishes a top-of-the-line Champagne that bears the name Carbon is the quality of its grapes. The ancestral ability to ferment the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in small oak barrels adds complexity and elegance to the distinctive style of its Champagne.
Aged for at least 5 years in the cellar and from parcels classified as Grand Cru, this is the magic of his Cuvées. Carbone is the result of long-term success reflecting research and passion. Through countless trials, combinations and experiments, they have been able to obtain the purest expressions of terroir, blending and separating them to cultivate floral, spicy and delicate aromas in their Cuvées.
The Champagne House Carbon has been able to combine and master countless combinations to achieve the delicate balance of each of its creations. It is thanks to this meticulous course that the Champagne House Carbon asserts today to know its domain on the end of the fingers. From Brut to Blanc de Blancs Millésimés and Rosé, each Cuvée has and expresses its own aromatic personality.
