Champagne Castelnau has launched a 2018 special edition cycling-inspired design for its Brut Réserve NV and Brut Réserve Rosé NV bottles to celebrate its role as the Champagne of Amaury Sport Organisation (A.S.O), organisers of the Tour de France and other cycling events.
This is the seventh full bottle design in a collection dedicated to the brand’s cycling association.
In the UK, cycling fans will be able to purchase the 2018 special edition bottles featuring a striking bike tyre-track design, from Castelnau Wine Agencies and selected premium wine retailers.
Belinda Stone, Marketing and Communication Manager at Castelnau Wine Agencies says “The determination and dedication of the participants in iconic sporting events like the Tour de France reflect the audacious and adventurous personality of the Champagne Castelnau brand and the commitment of the winemaking team. We are delighted to add the 2018 special edition cycling-inspired design to the collection – a great gift or collectors’ item for fans of the sport and Champagne”
A hallmark of Champagne Castelnau is long lees ageing. The Brut Réserve NV is aged on its lees for 6 years and the Brut Réserve Rosé NV for 4 years. The 2018 special edition cycling-inspired design bottles will retail for £35.00 and £38.00 respectively and in a twin bottle gift box for £85.00.
