British Airways is getting set to toast the first serving of its new champagne on short-haul flights from March 1.
Champagne de Castelnau Reserve Brut NV is the new champagne of choice for customers flying in the airline’s Club Europe cabin.
The Reims-based champagne house, which was established in 1916, was chosen as the top tipple for short-haul travellers after a blind taste test, with quarter bottles of ‘Castelnau Brut NV’ winging their way on board.
Troy Warfield, British Airways’ director of customer experience, said: “Castelnau’s full and rich champagne came top in our recent blind taste test with two Masters of Wine, and we’re delighted to welcome it on board our short-haul flights for customers flying in Club Europe.”
Champagne de Castelnau Reserve Brut NV is a firm favourite with champagne connoisseurs, with several top hotels in London and Paris offering de Castelnau’s rich and complex non-vintage wine to their guests as their House Champagne.
