Bubbl. the essential tool for the champagne bottle

Bubbl. is a revolution for restaurateurs and all lovers of bubbles and therefore of Champagne.
Thanks to this innovative system, it is now possible to extend the life of an open bottle of Champagne for more than a week without compromising the quality of this drink which has become so sought after and therefore a luxury product.Storage of Prosecco with Bubbl.

What is Bubbl.?

Previously, an opened bottle of Champagne quickly lost its freshness (oxidation of the wine) and its effervescence, which limited the ability of restaurants to serve Champagne by the glass. With Bubbl., this alteration linked to the operating loss is reduced to almost zero. The system prevents premature oxidation of the wine and preserves the bubbles of Champagne, thanks to the injection of an oenological gas composed of CO2 and nitrogen.


The origin of Bubbl. technology.

Bubble. takes up the winemaking codes of wine and is based on the technology of the Wikeeps system, a system patented in 2012 and widely used by wine professionals for the conservation and service of still wine. Bubble. is therefore a reliable, proven and widely appreciated tool by all wine professionals and amateurs alike.

Thanks to Bubbl., restaurateurs can now expand their offer of Champagne by the glass, allowing their customers to discover a greater variety of Champagne and sparkling wines in general while reducing the losses incurred on each bottle of Champagne opened.

Like 10 years ago with wine by the glass, Bubbl. will allow each professional to highlight the best cuvée of the winegrower, white, rosé, non-dosed… without any limit and to allow to express the whole palette of a terroir and a house of Champagne.

1. What is a 9 Litre bottle of Champagne called ?
A 9 liter bottle of Champagne is called a Salmanazar. The name refers to Shalmaneser, an ancient king of Assyria. It is common practice in the champagne and wine industry to give biblical names to large bottles.

A Salmanazar contains the equivalent of 12 standard bottles of wine or champagne (each standard bottle containing 750ml). Large bottles like the Salmanazar are often used for celebrations or special events due to their impressive size.

Additionally, some wine enthusiasts argue that large bottle sizes can improve the aging process of wine because wine ages more slowly in a large bottle compared to a standard bottle.

It should also be noted that large bottles, including Salmanazars, are often filled from standard bottles to ensure the quality of the wine or champagne.


2. What are the different sizes of champagne bottles?
There are several sizes of champagne bottles, ranging from the smallest, called “Demi” or “Half”, to the largest, the “Melchizedek”. Here is a list of the most commonly used sizes:

  1. Demi or Half: contains 375 milliliters, or half of a standard bottle.
  2. Standard bottle: contains 750 milliliters.
  3. Magnum: holds 1.5 litres, the equivalent of two standard bottles.
  4. Jeroboam: contains 3 liters, the equivalent of four standard bottles.
  5. Réhoboam: contains 4.5 liters, the equivalent of six standard bottles.
  6. Methuselah: Holds 6 liters, the equivalent of eight standard bottles.
  7. Salmanazar: contains 9 liters, the equivalent of twelve standard bottles.
  8. Balthazar: contains 12 liters, the equivalent of sixteen standard bottles.
  9. Nebuchadnezzar: holds 15 liters, the equivalent of twenty standard bottles.
  10. Melchizedek or Midas: contains 30 liters, the equivalent of forty standard bottles.

These sizes are not all commonly used; beyond the Nebuchadnezzar, they are generally reserved for special occasions. These names, mostly of biblical origin, are specific to sparkling wines such as Champagne. Bottle sizes for non-sparkling wines may have different names and volumes.


3. What is the price of a bottle of Champagne ?
The price of a bottle of Champagne can vary greatly depending on several factors, including the type of Champagne, whether it is brut Champagne, white, pink Champagne or other variations. Additionally, the brand, vintage, bottle size, and location of purchase can all influence the cost of this luxurious form of sparkling wine.

  • Entry-level Brut Champagne: Entry-level non-vintage Brut Champagnes from good brands can cost around $30-$50. The term “brut” indicates a dry wine with little added sugar during the dosage.
  • Mid-range Champagne Blanc de Blancs: For Champagne Blanc de Blancs, made only from white grapes, usually Chardonnay, prices for mid-range brands can range from 50 to 100 euros.
  • High-end Brut Champagnes: For brut champagnes from prestigious brands, such as Dom Pérignon or Krug, you can expect to pay from 100 to several hundred euros per bottle.
  • Luxury Champagnes: For collectible Champagne bottles, which may include vintage Champagnes or larger bottle formats, prices can go up to several thousand euros.

These prices are general estimates and may vary depending on market and demand. “Champagne” is a specific sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France and bears an appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC). However, other regions of the world also produce excellent sparkling wines, which can offer remarkable value at lower prices than Champagne.


4. What is the best-selling champagne?
Moët & Chandon is the best-selling champagne brand in the world. This champagne house, based in Épernay in France, is renowned for its quality cuvées and innovative winemaking techniques. It is also famous for its Champagne Brut Impérial, which is one of the most popular bottles of champagne on the international market.

However, it is important to note that the popularity of a champagne brand can vary depending on many factors, including the specific market, region, and individual consumer preferences. For example, there are other very large champagne houses that are also highly recognized worldwide, such as Veuve Clicquot, Nicolas Feuillatte, Ruinart, Bollinger, Heidsick, Taittinger and Laurent-Perrier.

When it comes to the bottle of so-called luxury or prestige champagne, Dom Pérignon (which is produced by Moët & Chandon) and Louis Roederer Cristal are among the most sought after and valued brands.

It should be noted that although these brands are highly sold and widely appreciated, the quality of champagne can vary considerably: depending on the blend whether it is brut, rosé, blanc de blanc even within a single brand, depending vintage, cuvée, and other factors.
