If you’ve ever been a guest at our table, you know we serve wine with every evening meal, and that we are big proponents of drinking bubbles with dinner. In particular, the wines of Champagne are known for their acidic crispness which makes them great partners for a wide range of dishes. But few can explain this better than the folks from the Champagne bureau…
No celebration is complete without Champagne, especially the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. While Thanksgiving is uniquely American, traditional Thanksgiving dishes pair best with the sparkling wine that is uniquely French, Champagne.
Bottles may vary in style, body, and sweetness, but Champagne is versatile enough to carry you through the entire Thanksgiving meal. The effervescent nature of the wine easily transitions among different flavors and textures. The infographic below describes how to pair Champagne with traditional Thanksgiving foods.
