Sparkling film night

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Wine Column -

WITH Lin­coln, Life of Pi and Les Mis all in con­tention for best film at the BAFTAs, it is bound to be an ex­cit­ing night at the Royal Opera House on Fe­bru­ary 10. You can join in the cel­e­bra­tions with, a glass or two of the of­fi­cial BAFTA Tait­tinger Brut Re­serve cham­pagne which will be poured for the stars on the night. We have man­aged to re­serve three of those same mag­nums for our BAFTA Cham­pagne Tait­tinger com­pe­ti­tion. Also be­ing poured at the Opera House will be New Zealand’s Villa Maria Pri­vate Bin Sau­vi­gnon Blanc 2012 and Villa Maria Pri­vate Bin Mer­lot Caber­net Sau­vi­gnon 2011, and a pair of th­ese wines will be in­cluded with the Cham­pagne.

Tait­tinger Brut Re­serve is one of my favourite Cham­pagnes and its ele­gant, clean lines make it ideal to go with the well-dressed stars of the evening.

All you have to do is an­swer the ques­tion be­low and send it to­gether with your name, ad­dress, in­clud­ing post­code, and day­time tele­phone num­ber, ei­ther by email to me at chris­tine@christineaustin.co.uk or on a post­card, to BAFTA Cham­pagne Tait­tinger Com­pe­ti­tion, Sarah Free­man, York­shire Post Mag­a­zine, No 1 Leeds, 26 White­hall Road, Leeds LS12 1BE, to ar­rive by Thurs­day, Jan­uary 31. Three win­ners will be se­lected at random from Grapevine’s over­sized ice bucket.
