In The Drinks Business' 2019 Champagne Report cooperatives were highlighted for their success in a recent blind tasting as 'lesser-known labels from the region's cooperatives score better than some famous bottles of branded fizz.'

 

In particular Castelnau was lauded for 'Taking home the ultimate accolade in the vintage Champagne category' and for 'achieving a near-perfect score for its release from the 2006 harvest.'
