As you know, at Urban Spirit, we love nothing more than hearing about the launch of inventive drinks products. This is why we were intrigued to learn of a new champagne, one that is aged in expensive gold.

Champagne Leclerc Briant is the creator of this wine, being the first wine ever to be fermented and stored in such a way. Holding 228 litres of drink, the stainless steel barrel is lined in 24-carat gold, making for a unique process as well as an unusual taste.

Hervé Jestin, head winemaker for the brand, says that there is “a resonance between solar energy and the wine”, he said the gold will “increase the level of solar activity during the first fermentation”.

Admitting that the barrel was very expensive, Jestin tested drink from a gold barrel to one fermented in a standard one, claiming the taste to be completely different.

He also recorded that “gold makes a connection with cosmic activity.”
