As Coravin debuts its Sparkling System, the company is entering a strategic partnership with Moët Hennessy as the “Official Preservation Partner of Moët Hennessy Champagnes.”
Eight years in development, Coravin’s Sparkling System is said to be the first universal fit solution to preserve the effervescence and flavors of sparkling wine after single-glass service. The sparkling stopper locks securely on any half-bottle 750ml bottle or magnum, while the sparkling charger injects carbon dioxide into the bottle after the wine is served, which prevents bubbles from dissipating.
“Coravin’s aim is to make fine wines and Champagne more accessible by facilitating by-the-glass options,” said Christopher Ladd, Coravin CEO. “As a relatively young company, to have the recognized world leader in and luxury sparkling wines not only support but adopt our technology is extraordinary.”
Coravin is best known for its wine preservation system that extends the life of a bottle after a single glass service through the injection of inert gas. Until recently, it was only available for still wines but, after extensive testing in collaboration with the global Maisons of the Moët Hennessy Group – which include Dom Pérignon, Krug, Veuve Clicquot, Ruinart and Moët & Chandon – Coravin Sparkling was created. It ensures the integrity of the finest bottles of Champagne and sparkling wine weeks after the first glass has been served.
The Coravin Sparkling System will also have an economic benefit for restaurants and bars by virtually eliminating the risk of waste while making prestige Champagne more accessible to consumers.
“Our mission is and always has been to craft great experiences for our consumers,” said Philippe Schaus, President & CEO of Moët Hennessy. “The new Coravin system will enable more Champagne lovers to discover and enjoy exceptional bottles.”
The Coravin Sparkling System is available internationally for at-home and professional use via Coravin’s global websites.
