Not so cordiale?

Nicolas Sarkozy has reportedly ruffled royal feathers by demanding to see the Queen’s wine list ahead of a state banquet.

The Sun quotes a senior insider as saying: “It’s a bizarre request. Even the most demanding French palate could not be disappointed by the choice of wines at Windsor Castle.”

The demand is particularly unusual because the French president is teetotal, although new wife Carla Bruni enjoys fine wine.

Windsor Castle’s wine cellar was installed in the early 17th century and houses some of the world’s most exclusive vintages.

A spokesman for Buckingham Palace confirmed the wines had been chosen “in consultation” with the Elysee Palace.
