C.R.E.A.M. Champagne Rules Everything Around Me

People try too damn hard when pairing food and wine. The more exotic the food and wine combo, the more they beat their chests. Wine drinkers are always trying to find ways to make red wines fit with the food they’re pairing it with. LET IT GO ALREADY.  I like reds just as much as you, but it doesn’t work with everything. When it comes to pairing, whites work more often than reds, but by a wide margin Champagne trumps all. As far as I’m concerned Champagne pairs with basically EVERYTHING.  Let’s break it down with a chart so that Millenials can understand what the fuck I’m trying to explain.

Give it a try. Throw out your most outlandish list, and I guarantee that Champagne will more often than not be the better partner. The question is simple: If only allowed to have one wine for eternity to pair with food, which would it be? You can have your Lafite and your Screaming Eagle. I’ll take bubbles.

    I’ve yet to find something that doesn’t pair with Champagne. When I do find that thing, it will be a sad, sad day.

      That would be a sad day indeed. Here’s to that day never happening. Cheers!
