Royal Wedding bubbles…… suggestions for Harry & Meghan

Not that Meghan needs any more #marklesparkle.. not at all….


But what are they going to serve at the wedding? William and Kate served Chapel Down Brut Rosé at their 2011 wedding so, perhaps not this again. Sibling rivalry and all that…  Yes, Laurent-Perrier holds a royal warrant and it is a great Champagne, but that should certainly not be factored into the choice. This is a wedding that respects convention while making it clear that boundaries have been redrawn. Let’s face it, Prosecco is still being imbibed in ever-increasing quantities and qualities too. But perhaps it is now a tad ‘everyday’ for such a momentus occasion.

Maybe it should be one of Australia’s finest fizzes. Arras Grand Vintage is a serious contender and, well, Australia is still part of the Commonwealth. And perhaps after Brexit there will be a flush of Australian fizz on British shelves so Harry & Meghan could just be getting in early! (I am all for this one!!)

However, this is still very much a British ‘do’ so, of course the bubbles should also be British. Happily, there are some excellent English bubbles to be found. These days I would also advocate that there are some interesting still wines to be found as well, particularly amongst the white wines on offer. Lucky for the rabble not attending the formal celebrations, rabble such as myself who will just have to contend with watching it on the tele at their own ‘do’, chances are that these days you should be able to find an English fizz on the supermarket shelf or at least in Majestic.

So here is the first two suggestions for my best English bubbles for any Royal Wedding celebration:

Nyetimber Classic Cuvee.

Chapel Down Kit’s Coty Blanc de Blanc 2013
