Wine & Caviar To Remind You

 


There’s always a reason to celebrate or something to which you can look forward. It could be the re-release of your favorite Starbucks drink, catching up with an old friend, or even a three day weekend. But when you need something extra special about which to get ecstatic, there is Champagne and caviar.
 
Caviar may be making a comeback, but did it ever leave? The word itself, caviar, is synonymous with epicurean elegance.  It’s a crucial component of the collective foodie palate, whether you eat that fragrant dollop off the back of your hand or enjoy it atop an avocado slice during Sunday brunch.  No matter the scenario, those big, fat, and flavorful pearls beg for regal Champagne. When you are ready to reward yourself for a job well done, or simply wish to seize the moment for celebration, try one of these otherworldly pairings. They remind us that life is meant to be celebrated, and you deserve it. 
Champagne Taittinger Brut La Française NV ($59.99) with Calvisius Caviar Tradition Prestige ($74.99)

This is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier wines aged sur lie for almost four years (more than double the legal minimum.) The pairing experience: You’re sitting on a bed of leaves commingled with nuts in an apple orchard on a crisp fall day. The sun lightly dusts your cheeks while the leaves and nuts crunch beneath your bum. The scent of macadamia, almond, and unwashed apple skin wafts into your nostrils. You inhale deeply and never regret it.
 
Champagne Taittinger Prelude Grands Crus NV ($94.99) with Calvisius Caviar Oscietra Classic ($119.99)
 
This Champagne is a classic 50%/50% blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir produced exclusively from Grand Cru vineyards. Wine Spectator gave it 92 points. The pairing experience: Your're eating a buttery croissant while sitting on a balcony constructed with thick, marble balustrades. It overlooks a river so mineral-rich you can taste the seabed at first glance. Any second now, a sun shower is sure to begin.
 
Champagne Taittinger Comptes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2006 ($198.99) with Calvisius Caviar Siberian ($69.99)
 
One hundred percent Chardonnay has arrived. The 2006 Champagne vintage was simply brilliant, and it still shows. The pairing experience: You're carried along the breeze on the back of linden blossoms from the vineyards of Champagne to the bottom of Siberia’s Baikal Lake. You have the power to breathe under water.
 
Champagne Taittinger Comptes de Champagne Rosé 2006 ($261.99) with Calvisius Caviar Oscietra Royal ($139.99)
 
This wine received 95 points from Wine Spectator. It's a tryst with rich red fruit and a certain, satisfying brine that is nearly ineffable. When you are ready to enter another dimension where mind and body meld into a harmonious one, try this pairing on for size.

    So no discussion of what happened to Iranian caviar after Khomeini or 'Soviet' caviar after the USSR's dissolution? Or of other drinks that match the dish other than champers?
