OZEN by Atmosphere introduces Guy Charbaut Champagne

Published

on

Despite being nestled amongst lush exotic scenery in the middle of the Indian Ocean, guests of OZEN by Atmosphere at Maadhoo in the Maldives are treated to some of the best culinary products from around the world.

The latest addition to OZEN’s extensive beverage menu is a selection of Guy Charbaut Champagne from one of France’s finest wine-making regions, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. This region is known worldwide for producing superior quality Terroir Champagne.

From mid-January, all guests of the five-star luxury OZEN will be able to enjoy Guy Charbaut Champagne Selection Brut and Guy Charbaut Rose Brut – Premier Cru, as part of the generous inclusions within the resort’s luxury all-inclusive Indulgence Plan.

“As part of our ‘Joy of Giving’ ethos, we have chosen to introduce a wonderful new Champagne brand to our already impressive selection of wines available at OZEN: Guy Charbaut,” Venkata Giri, Chief Operating Officer at Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts, was quoted in a statement, as saying.

“We want our loyal guests to enjoy only the best Champagne while staying with us – that is the OZEN difference. We will not cut corners when it comes to providing the very best for our guests, who expect and deserve to enjoy top-quality food & beverages.”

The Champagne Selection Brut features notes of mandarin leaves, pine bark and when aired unveils intensely spices and peppered notes. The sensation of freshness and roundness prevails on the palate, perfect as an aperitif.

The Rose Brut – Premier Cru airs intense red fruit notes of raspberry and strawberry, alongside touches of pink grapefruit and blood orange. It pairs remarkably well with fresh and tangy desserts.

The Guy Charbaut vineyard was established by the Charbaut family in 1936, and now into its third generation of winemakers, continues to produce some of the world’s finest-quality Champagne.

The vineyard, consisting of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay varieties, covers over twenty hectares. The major part extends through the Premiers Crus villages of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Bisseuil and Avenay, with the rest lying in the villages of Viviers-sur-Artaut and Landreville. The exceptional quality of these terroirs favours the production of varietal wines which reveal their unique character. With a steadfast commitment to producing quality Champagne, the Charbaut family produces only a limited quantity of Champagne per year, which is in high demand by wine lovers.

In addition to providing some of the world’s finest Champagne, guests at OZEN by Atmosphere at Maadhoo can enjoy a variety of exclusive foods from Italy, Spain, Germany and France; all of which come from regions that are well-known for producing the highest-quality products.

The OZEN product sourcing team tend to favour small, family-run businesses that have a personal history with their products. Superior quality, authenticity, and sustainability are common to all companies.

Amidst the exotic turquoise hues of South Male Atoll lies the tranquil island of Maadhoo, home to the flagship luxury all-inclusive resort of the popular Indian Ocean hospitality brand Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts.

Having opened its shores to the world in 2016, OZEN by Atmosphere at Maadhoo offers the discerning traveller a uniquely exclusive holiday plan, the Atmosphere Indulgence where guests will experience the ultimate hassle-free beach holiday in the Maldives.

The contemporary design style of the resort’s 90 standalone luxury villas and overall ambience of OZEN complements the naturally blessed surroundings of Maadhoo island.

The opening of VARU by Atmosphere is the start of an ambitious expansion plan of the Indian Ocean hospitality group. With several new properties being added to the existing four-property portfolio, this opening enhances the groups growth within the ‘By Atmosphere’ white-label sub-brand – along with the group’s other sub-brands of OZEN, OBLU and OBLU Select.
