A glass of champagne is usually a toast on very special occasions. But the chilled sparkling wine is also extremely popular as a sparkling accompaniment to oysters, for example. However, champagne can also be served with hearty food and tastes excellent.
Serve champagne with a hearty meal
Full-bodied champagne varieties go great with hearty food such as red meat – and should not only be served with oysters. The varieties that shine in a yellow to red color are mostly made from red grapes. Since the champagne was only in contact with the dark grape skin for a very short time, you can’t see it, but it is noticeable in terms of taste.
The more base wine made from the red grapes, the more full-bodied the champagne tastes in the end. Therefore, it goes well with hearty and strong food.
