Royal wine sales soar but not at vineyard

White Burgundy wine drunk at Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding sold out within hours after fans discovered the couple chose Olivier Leflaive’s Les Sétilles Bourgogne Blanc from Puligny-Montrachet, Côte-d’Or.

UK merchant Lay & Wheeler sold its last 810 bottles of the 2016 chardonnay and said it could have sold four times that.

Olivier Leflaive said he was pleased they chose his wine but it had been a ‘moral recompense” rather than financial as vineyard sales had not risen.
