The brand Beau Joie specialises in high-quality champagnes which are presented in stunning formats. Manufactured in the French city of Épernay, Beau Joie is a genuine champagne which is comprised of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. The finest grapes from the local area are used, where they have absorbed the benefits of the gentle French climate to produce fruit which is perfectly balanced between sharp and sweet.
Beau Joie champagne has a light, fresh taste on the palate, with a subtle sweetness and a gently effervescent mouthfeel. Unlike some other champagnes, Beau Joie does not use a dosage (an extra dose of sugar which is added to champagne during its production), so the result is not overly sweet. The flavours of the Beau Joie are expressed without being inhibited by the sugar, meaning that the champagne is delicately balanced and allows all the different flavour notes to be expressed.
Beau Joie champagne comes wrapped in a protective armour casing
The first thing you'll notice about Beau Joie is that the bottle comes encased in beautiful copper armour. This cutting-edge design not only looks stunning and protects the delicate glass bottle, but it also helps to keep the champagne inside cool so that you can enjoy it at the correct temperature. The Beau Joie armour is inspired by the armour of the knights who traditionally protected the French kingdom, and the lattice pattern recalls the genteel styling of the era. The advantage of the Beau Joie armour is that it will keep your champagne cool for longer and it eliminates the need for an ice bucket.
The copper armour of Beau Joie is produced with environmental factors in mind. All the copper used is from second-generation copper scrap, which is melted down and reformed to create a beautiful and functional piece of artwork. Further, Beau Joie are setting up a recycling program with bars, clubs, and restaurants, to collect the empty armour casings once the champagne has been enjoyed, and to send the copper back to be reused once again.
Champagne made in the traditional French style, with a Beau Joie twist
Once the grapes have been selected, Beau Joie follow a careful production process to ensure a quality product at the end. The grapes are gently pressed by airbags, to avoid the skin of the grapes touching the juice. This ensures that the champagne will be a beautiful white colour, whether using white or red grapes. The wine is aged to develop its flavours and complexity, before yeast is added for the second fermentation which creates the delectable tiny bubbles which champagne is known for. Then the yeast is collected in the neck of the bottle and frozen in order to remove it from the finished product. Now the Beau Joie is ready to drink!
