Champagne Castelnau Brut Reserve NV wins Gold at SWAs - June 2019

Sommelier Wine Awards


Castelnau Brut Reserve won Gold at the Sommelier Wine Awards 2019 and received a special mention for being the best-priced Gold for the second year running. According to the category introduction, 'This year Champagne came roaring back, with a fine performance across the board, but particularly non-vintage.' They 'found a string of high quality NVs throughout, allowing us to put together a beautifully laddered Gold List'.

Only seven non-vintage champagnes were awarded Gold this year and the judges included the below tasting note: 

"As judges awarded  this champagne a well-deserved Gold medal, James Fryer of Woodhead 17 was impressed by 'green apple skin on the nose, with some nuttiness on the palate, along with taut acidity and Granny Smith notes, leading to a slightly oxidative character on the finish', while team leader Jan Konetzki enjoyed its 'lemon yoghurt and white almond notes, as well as some sea salt, with fine, creamy perlage.'"
