In 2010, 168 bottles of champagne dating from the 19th century were found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea off the Åaland Islands, by a team led by Christian Ekström. This was an extraordinary discovery!
After spending 170 years on the sea bed, the champagne was still intact. A dark environment, a constant temperature of four to six degrees and the pressure at the bottom of the sea created ideal conditions for preserving the bottles after the shipwreck.
Most of the bottles brought up from the bottom of the sea were JUGLAR – A champagne house that was founded in Chalons in 1804 which is no longer in existence. At that time, the Maison judged that the competition on the English market was too great and therefore focused its commercial efforts on Poland, Scandinavia and Russia.
Châlons at heart and originally from Russia, Olga is the face of Champagne CARBOT.
