This is one of the few Bugatti products you might be able to afford.
As fans of the outrageous Bugatti Bolide and the odd bottle of French wine, this is a brand collaboration we can get behind. French hypercar manufacturer Bugatti and Champagne Carbon, also a product of France in the Grand Est region have teamed up for a new bottle of vino (this is not their first) dubbed the EB.03 Bolide that comes in a beautiful two-tone blue and black carbon fiber wrapped bottle.
The branding move here comes just in time for Bugatti's 110th birthday too, meaning plenty of this stuff will be popped and consumed at celebrations around the elite automotive world. And since the Bolide is the pinnacle of Bugatti engineering and design, the bottle for the EB.03 tries aims to emulate just that in a real carbon fiber collectible.
"The Bugatti Bolide is one of the most special creations to ever have been imagined by our designers and engineers in Molsheim, bringing new levels of innovation and performance to the world of production cars," said Wiebke Stahl, Managing Director at Bugatti. "Like any Bugatti, it is incomparable, and we challenged our partners at Champagne Carbon to create something equally unique in celebration. What they have delivered is a perfect pairing for Bolide; beautiful, rare, and with an edgy intensity."
The liquid blend inside the bottle is 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir. These wines are of a 2013 vintage that was apparently quite rare considering these "Blancs de blancs' were a result of a cold and wet winter with a cool spring resulting in a late harvest. What does this all mean? The flavor is described as very intense and an excellent candidate to age well. The vintners claim the EB.03 will pair well with "a delicate recipe such as a scallop ceviche, a red tuna sashimi or a filet of Saint-Pierre with citrus fruits." Sounds delicious!
The Champagne Carbon EB.03 made for the Bolide isn't the first special collectible bottle to honor a Bugatti milestone. This product is the follow-up to the EB.02 carbon fiber bottle in orange and black carbon fiber. The last version was for the Bugatti hypercar that recently surfaced at Goodwood, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ that cracked the elusive 300-mph barrier.
Available for order now, this bottle of Champagne Carbon EB.03 Bolide for Bugatti will cost you €290.00 ($294 USD at current exchange rates). The bottle might not be your speed but then neither is the Bolide, and this is most certainly cheaper than nearly any part found on the $4.7 million hypercar.
