Caviar and Champagne: a classic combination

Caviar and Champagne have long been considered a classic pairing in caviar connoisseur circles; the delicious salty taste of the caviar is beautifully enhanced by a dry Champagne. If you're a newcomer to the world of caviar we have other great suggestions for a sparkling pairing to suit both your palate and your pocket.

For the Traditionalist

Russian sturgeon Caviar such as Osetra Imperial Golden Caviar makes a beautiful pairing with fine champagne. Our black-sea farmed prized caviar is some of the very best golden Osetra caviar we have found worldwide. Delicious with Brut Champagne!

Nothing beats a great vintage bottle of Dom Perignon from the house of Moet & Chandon – the 1990's produced some excellent vintages. A vintage Krug or Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancswould make a great Caviar and Champagne pairing.

For the Wise Connoisseur 

Our Sevruga Caviar has a distinguished, smooth, buttery flavor and what it lacks in size amongst the true sturgeons, it more than makes up in taste intensity.

There are many great non-vintage champagnes out there. The Bollinger Special Cuvee is an excellent choice, or perhaps a Billecart Salmon. Consider looking for a grower champagne, Gosset NV Brut Grande Reserve is a great choice – grower champagnes are grown in the Champagne region of France but are produce by the same estate that owns the vineyards the grapes come from – usually offering great taste at a lower price point.

For the Value Lover 

You cannot beat the very cost effective American Hackleback Caviar. Strong in taste and light on your wallet – this is a great entry point into the world of caviar and would not disappoint as a caviar and champagne pairing.

Instead of French Champagne, consider a local, yet equally delicious, Champagne alternative such as the Italian Prosecco, Spanish Cava or a great sparkling wine from California. Whatever your choice – make sure that the sparkling tipple of your choice is dry, not sweet, and suitably chilled of course!
