Top tips from Pommery on choosing Champagne for your big day.

We all know too well how stressful organising a wedding can be, not to mention choosing which sparkling wine to serve! In recent years it has become increasingly popular for wedding parties to serve their guests a variety of styles of sparkling wine, including Prosecco, Cava or English Sparkling wine. However, for a special celebration, you need a special wine and it is therefore no surprise that Champagne is still the most popular drink served at weddings.

The ultimate celebratory drink, a glass of perfectly chilled Pommery Brut Royal Champagne offers the perfect balance of flavour, elegance and style to start your special day with a bang. But did you know Champagne works especially well when paired with food too?

What type of food pairs well with Pommery Brut Royal?

Pommery produce Champagne in a number of different styles which can match perfectly with a variety of foods. For example, their Brut Royal NV would go well with crispy salt and pepper squid served with a lime dressing, a seafood platter or white meat with a creamy sauce. The Pommery Vintage Grand Cru has great structure, flavour and body to complement slow cooked beef in a red wine sauce, or why not try Apanage Rosé NV which has exceptional fruit concentration and freshness with a dessert, such as strawberry cheesecake.

What about something more quirky and fun?

With any wedding or engagement celebration, the happy couple will be on the receiving end of a lot of toasts. From raising a glass of bubbly with friends and family at the engagement, to the wedding day itself. You?ll also be planning how to welcome guests with a Champagne reception. While Champagne is a classic choice, there is also a cute and quirky way to serve this – in miniature Pommery POP Champagne bottles with straws! The 20cl bottles are filled with one of three classic Pommery blends and come with traditional corks. They are available in four colours (gold, silver, pink and blue) so choose the bottle that best coordinates with your wedding look. These can be served on trays or handed out to guests at your reception or to toast the speeches or give as wedding favours. They are this year’s wedding must-have!
