CYCLINGTIPS x CELLARSPACE
Like a fine wine, the Tour only seems to get better with age, and its 105th edition in 2018 seems set to be a particularly fine vintage.
The 176 riders of the peloton and its enormous entourage will visit many of the country’s most iconic destinations over a gruelling 3,329km of racing, stretching from the Vendee’s wild Atlantic coast to the cobbles of Roubaix, and from the Alps to the Pyrenees. For Australian cycling fans, that means one thing – a month spent in front of the TV, daydreaming of France.
In partnership with CellarSpace, CyclingTips is proud to bring you this selection of authentic French wines aligned with key stages of the 2018 Tour. Throughout the Tour de France, our winemakers and wine experts will be guiding you through our selection of fine French wines. Whether you’re new to French wines or a frequent quaffer, we’ll be sending you notes on what you’ll be opening up as you sit back and watch each stage. Follow along and drink your way around France, stage by stage.
At CyclingTips, we know the struggle of July’s late nights – the push and pull of sleep-deprived delirium versus the desire to stay up so you don’t miss a single moment. We also know that a fine drop in hand is the perfect companion to spectating the Tour.
France’s most famous wine regions trace an arc from the country’s north-east to the south-west, while this year’s tour traverses the north-west over the opening week. The pack that we’ve put together is built to showcase the finest wines from France’s best-regarded wine regions, and as such is a little back-loaded for this year’s Tour. Luckily, that’s where the cobbles, the Alps and the Pyrenees fall – in short, when you’ll be most appreciative of a fine drop.
