Bertrand Senecourt - Beau Joie Champagne
Traditional French Style + A Beau Joie Twist. Beau Joie is a new champagne with a unique metal suit. Encased in a 100% copper armour, Beau Joie is both beautiful and environmentally friendly (the copper is recycled). The perfect gift or party piece. Inspired by the armour that the knights wore to protect the kingdom of France and the copper roofs of Paris. The only champagne where “innovation drives function design” handmade copper suit of armour acts as a grip for pouring, rubber thumb grip in the punt of the bottle, each Champagne has a different “suit of armour” patented design.
The estate is situated in Epernay, the heart of the Champagne region, and was founded in 1972 by Charles Ellner, a professional riddler who had been buying his own vineyards making small production champagnes for a small but dedicated clientele. Charles Ellner has grown to become a worldwide esteemed family-owned brand. In the hands of the fourth generation, the house now encompasses more than 54 hectares of vineyards, mainly in valle de la marne and région de sézanne, producing only about 1,000,000 bottles annually with their own styles, flavours and consistency in quality.
The quirky, handmade design acts as a grip for pouring as well as the rubber thumb grip at the punt of the bottle. The metal suit is hand made from recycled material and it can store the Champagne at the right temperature for up to 2 hours with no need of ice bucket depending on the room temperature.
