Tempt Your Palette With These Wonderful Champagne and Food Pairings
Champagne is a classic choice when it comes to festive parties and celebrations. Yet many people aren’t necessarily aware that there are certain Champagne and food pairings that go really well together to really please the palette. Champagne – along with other sparkling wines — isn’t necessarily just a great party beverage; it’s also a highly versatile wine for enjoying with food.
Here are a few Champagne brands that go beautifully with a variety of appetizers, entrées, and desserts.
Dom Perignon Oenotheque
While this isn’t exactly a cheap bottle by any stretch, Dom Perignon is certainly the epitome of fine Champagne. The grapes are carefully harvested, then aged for 15 years, giving it unmatched complexity and richness. It’s vibrant texture and flavour, along with its structure, make it the perfect Champagne to pair with citrus, fennel, figs, smoked goods, fish, and pralines.
Champagne Bruno Paillard Rosé
The Paillard Rosé sparkling beverage is mainly a Pinot Noir sparkling wine that features a hint of Chardonnay with Pinot Noir added to it. With this sparkling wine you’ll discover notes of red currants, strawberries, cherries, and violets which are complemented by a touch of citrus. As such, this beverage pairs well with citrus fruits and berries that match its flavour.
Gruet Brut Blanc de Noirs
This sparkling wine is much more affordable than the others already mentioned on this list, but it is delectable nonetheless. Providing impeccable value for a delicious sparkling wine, Gruet Brut Blanc de Noirs features grapes that have been harvested for years and have achieved maximum maturation. It offers delicious aromas, red berry flavours, and a full body, making it perfect to pair with cheese, berries, and even deep dish of sauce-covered pasta!
