OK, we’ve got our first Royal Wedding wine!
Kensington Palace said Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV is getting popped at the reception. Pol Roger is a blend of 30-35 base wines across at least three vintages, and is made with the three traditional Champagne grapes: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. It’s $49, buy it here.
Here’s what they’ll be serving with the Champagne:
- Scottish Langoustines wrapped in Smoked Salmon with Citrus Crème Fraiche
- Grilled English Asparagus wrapped in Cumbrian Ham
- Garden Pea Panna Cotta with Quail Eggs and Lemon Verbena
- Heritage Tomato and Basil Tartare with Balsamic Pearls
- Poached Free Range Chicken bound in a Lightly Spiced Yoghurt with Roasted Apricot
- Croquette of Confit Windsor Lamb, Roasted Vegetables and Shallot Jam
- Warm Asparagus Spears with Mozzarella and Sun-Blush Tomatoes
Pol Roger was also served at William & Kate’s wedding and has a Royal Warrant, which means it’s an official supplier for the royal family. Other Champagnes that have a warrant are Louis Roederer, Mumm and Bollinger, but Pol Roger got the pop at the reception.

A telling sign of the times. When the Brits drink cheap Champagne at a royal reception. How far they have fallen. A 19th century power in the 21st century
