pop grape

royal reception bubbles revealed

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.

  1. 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
