How about a lovely champagne brunch to make the weekend special? Champagne is mostly known as a celebratory wine served to mark special occasions, but it is also a very food-friendly wine. Sommeliers and chefs love working together to pair champagne with main courses, even spicy Indian dishes! But… not all types of champagnes pair well with all types of foods. You wouldn’t want to serve a bone dry champagne with sweet wedding cake for example. It would leave a very bitter taste in your mouth.
This comprehensive webinar starts with a short introduction to explain why champagne is such a food-friendly wine, then dives deep into the factors that influence the taste profile of a champagne. In addition, the seminar will explore:
- the diverse terroirs
- the characteristics of the grape varieties
- the type of vessel used to ferment the wine
- the concept of reserve wine
- the influence of time spent aging
- the final phase of sugar dosage
At the end of the seminar, some recommendations of great champagne and food pairings to try will be shared.
Designed to inform champagne-lovers and foodies, this interactive seminar will give participants the tools to explore their senses and undertake their own experiments pairing champagne with food.
