Le Tour de France with a limited edition Brut Reserve release available from Spirited Wines
Saturday July 4th saw the Grand Depart of the 2015 Tour de France in Utrecht - the finish will not be for another three weeks when the riders arrive in Paris.
Champagne de Castelnau, exclusive Champagne supplier to the tour organisers, are marking this year's race with a impressive limited release Brut Reserve NV.
Aged for longer on the lees than most NVs, it is weighty, complex and concentrated; dark sandy yellow with brioche aromas, a substantial and precise Champagne.
Adept, assured and compelling; Very Good. Match with grilled lemon sole, beurre blanc and courgettes
The wine will be available in Spirited Wine, Nicolas stores and online at £29.99 from the end of June and for the duration of the race (4th July – 26th July).
Castelnau Wine Agencies are also offering the chance to win exclusive tickets to the Paris finish line on the Champs-Elysées - details on www.spiritedwines.co.uk
