which tyres for use in France

This year i get to fulfill a lifelong(well 28 year) dream and follow the tour, I use speciallised brand armadillo tyres at the moment,they are great for our rough chip sealed roads here in New Zealand. what tyre would you recommend for the smooth roads of France.keeping in mind i want puncture resistance as well as smoothness.cheers.

Michelin Krylion Carbon - almost 5,000 km last season, and no flats. Very similar performance as the Pro 3 race, but far more durable and affordable.

French tires on French roads. Proper.
