LAST FEW BOTTLES!

What better time for Champagne than summer? Time to celebrate with a toasty, creamy bottle of bubbly!

And we have the ideal bottle for you - rich, complex and full of delicious biscuity, brioche flavours.

Castelnau Brut Reserve NV is not only unusual for its rather excellent price (just £26.75 per bottle) but for the extended ageing it sees of up to 6 years, along with the addition of 20% reserve wines.

Taken together, these two factors give this lovely wine a superb depth and complexity, along with a rich, rounded texture.

Rare to find in a non-vintage wine, it is more reminiscent of a vintage Champagne - and one at double the price or more...

A Champagne for all occasions - whether you have something to celebrate or just fancy something sparkling!

About the wine

The Brut Reserve is unusual in that it contains quite a high proportion of Pinot Meunier, at 40% equal with Chardonnay. With 20% Pinot Noir, this majority of red grapes gives the wine depth, power and richness. Meanwhile, the Chardonnay adds fruit, elegance and finesse.

The 20% reserve wines also set this non-vintage wine apart as they bring complexity and mature notes to the wine, unusual for a non-vintage wine.

These reserve wines are immediately noticeable in the enticing aroma of this lovely Champagne where they add a biscuity/brioche note to the wine, mingling with vibrant citrus, some gingerbread-like spice and a roasted nut quality. This is an intense Champagne on the palate and the aromas follow through with an added honeyed note and touches of ripe peach and apricot. Elegant and refreshing, the long finish has a delicious toasty creaminess to it. An excellent wine that tasted blind, you'd be forgiven for thinking was a vintage Champagne at twice the cost or more!

"
Quite a tactile Champagne with good weight and mouth-feel. A strong bready yeast autolysis character, smooth texture and lengthy finish. A serious Champagne offering value at this price"

"
Fresh and lightly toasty, this creamy Champagne offers open-knit flavors of black currant, toasted brioche and lemon parfait. An accent of smoky mineral chimes in on the subtle finish."

"
Pale yellow-gold colour with streams of tiny bubbles. The nose shows maturity with brioche accenting ripe red fruits. Well-defined palate, lively acidity framing the flavour and silky mousse. Integrated and harmonious wine with a long finish."

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
