If you haven't gotten over the Wedding high from this weekends Royal Wedding here is a little taste as to what they drank at the reception following the wedding at Windsor Castle.
There are Afew houses that lay claim to the royal warrant such as Bollinger, Veuve Clicquot, Louis Roederer, GH Mumm Laurent Perrier, and the lucky chosen champagne for this royal event was the historic Pol Roger.
The Non Vintage served to all guests was a blend of 30 base wines across at least three vintages. Pol Roger is notorious in wine circles as the favorite Champagne of Sir Winston Churchill, Britain’s famous wartime Prime Minister. So much so he has his own special cuvée dedicated to him "Sir Winston Churchill Brut Vintage". The exact blend is a closely guarded family secret to match his particular taste, which is no surprise to us. "My Tastes are Simple, I am easily satisfied with the best" -Winston Churchill.
Pol Roger non-vintage Champagne was also served at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, back in 2011.
