French Prez demands to see Queens wine list!March 26th, 2008 - 2:53 pm ICT by admin
London, Mar 26 (ANI): French President Nicolas Sarkozy has Brit courtiers fuming after asking to see the list of wines to be served when he dines with Queen Elizabeth II.
The President and his new wife Carla Bruni will be attending a state banquet at Windsor Castle on Mar 26, and Sarkozys request has not gone down well.
Its a bizarre request. Even the most demanding French palate could not be disappointed by the choice of wines at Windsor Castle, The Sun quoted a senior insider, as saying.
Whats being seen as even more odd is the knowledge that the French president is teetotaller i.e. he doesnt touch liquor.
However, Sarkozys request has been accepted, revealed a spokesman for Buckingham Palace who confirmed that the wines had been chosen in consultation with the Elysee Palace.
Windsor Castles wine cellar was installed in the early 17th century and houses some of the worlds most exclusive vintages. (ANI)
