Peugeot Capitaine for decanting young red wines
Wine lovers are well aware that younger wines are rarely balanced, so proper aeration of such wines is essential. Still, most traditional decanters are designed to aerate older wines. Capitaine, on the other hand, is recommended for younger red wines. The Capitaine, like all Peugeot decanters, is a premium quality product that, with its elegant appearance and refined style, helps you to truly enjoy a drink.
Made from manually, individually blown glass, it stays stable on the table with a flat bottom and, thanks to its long and narrow neck and internal design, accelerates the release of wine aromas. It is an essential accessory not only for restaurants but also for households. Also available in 0.75 liter and 1.5 liter (magnum) versions.
When the Peugeot name is heard, everyone first thinks of cars. However, the history of the French company took a completely different path to world conquest. The history of the Peugeot company began with Jean-Pierre Peugeot, who entered the textile industry. As a result of his work, he left his sons Jean-Pierre and Jean-Frédéric Peugeot with a fabric dyeing workshop, an oil factory and a mill. Around 1810, the two boys converted the mill near Montbéliard and began making rolled steel. The Peugeot Brothers (Peugeot Fréres) initially made springs, saw blades, hand tools, as well as coffee grinders and women’s skirt tires. Steel mill products were so popular that they were used in many parts of France. Good quality and impeccably functioning goods have become a popular tool in cafes and restaurants. In 1885, a turning point came in the company’s profile: the automotive industry appeared. Over the years, cars have become the most important products of the company. However, the success of mill products is demonstrated by the fact that they have been manufactured and marketed around the world for more than a century. Be part of the Peugeot experience!
