M. Hostomme Submurges Its Product in 200 Feet of Water

M. Hostomme's aquatically aged champagne is extremely limited-edition, with only 60 bottles available in the United States. At $1,900, the alcoholic beverage's worth can only be understood in the context of its development. After four years on land, the aged champagne is submerged for a year in the waters of a remote island in Southern France.

At 200 feet deep, the conditions for aging alcoholic beverages is perfect. The underwater environment allows for the aged champagne to mature at a constant temperature and in total darkness—a kind of climate that "wine cellars can only aim to replicate."

Appropriately dubbed 'Abysse,' M. Hostomme's 100% Chardonnay is bound to arouse the taste buds with hints of caramelized peach, toasted almonds and its refreshing minerality.
