Royal Wedding wine revealed

Pol Roger will be the official Champagne at the Royal Wedding next week.

Amid feverish speculation – especially in the American press – around which Champagne will be served, Decanter.com has it on the highest authority that Pol Roger NV will be served.

Which wines will be served during the wedding breakfast at Buckingham Palace after the ceremony in Westminster Abbey is still a matter of debate: there are unconfirmed reports that an English wine will be on the table.

A spokesman for Pol Roger told Decanter.com a non-vintage had specifically been requested by the Palace.

It will be sipped before the sit-down meal prepared by Anton Mosimann and hosted by Prince Charles.

Pol Roger has a long and honourable association with the British aristocracy. It was the favourite Champagne of Sir Winston Churchill, and in 1984 Pol Roger created the Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill in his honour.

Traditionally, however, Pol Roger has not been drunk at royal weddings. Queen Victoria issued a royal warrant to Bollinger in 1884, and Prince Charles chose it both for his stag party and for his marriage to Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.
