Top Food Pairings for Sparkling Wines: Champagne Food Pairing Made Simple

What pairs well with sparkling wine? What goes good with Champagne? Food pairing with champagne and sparkling wines is much easier than you think! In fact, they are among the easiest of wine and food pairings. The best food pairings for sparkling wine will normally consist of richer foods. Rich foods and those which are greasy, fatty, fried, or spicy are perfect complements as both the acidity and effervescence of sparkling wines help to balance heavier foods. Many in the industry call sparkling wine the ’scrubbing bubbles’ for the palate as it perfectly cleanses the tongue in between bites. Read on for some of our favorite sparkling wine pairings.

Our Le Grand Courtage Blanc de Blancs Brut or Brut Rose are each the best sparkling wine in their category and price point, award winning and affordable French wines, and  both perfect complements to the below as our crisp, light and refreshing French sparklers are cuisine and cocktail friendly, meaning they make amazing, delicious sparkling cocktails and pair easily with a wide variety of food. They are not quite as dry and yeasty (and much more affordable to the everyday) than traditional Champagne, but not nearly as sweet as a Prosecco.​​
