4 things to know when serving Champagne on board

4 things to know when serving Champagne on board

4 of 4 4/4

Select the right food pairings

Champagne can be an excellent alternative to white or rosé wine with meals and is light enough to be enjoyed for celebrations at any time of day - just be sure to complement your bottle with the right dishes.

"Champagne pairs well with traditional as well as more unusual food and dishes," says Peretti. "A Chardonnay-based Champagne is ideal for breakfast as it pairs well with fluffy omelettes, creamy scrambled eggs, Eggs Benedict or Florentine and smoked salmon.

"Choose a vintage Champagne (a blend of wines from the same harvest) to pair with white meat such as chicken, capon or turkey. Pink Champagne will match perfectly with smoked salmon but also has its place with cheese - especially goat and sheep cheeses. With Comte-style cheese, pick a blanc de noirs made with pinot noir or meunier. If you are with a group of fish-loving friends pour a refreshing glass of rosé Champagne to serve with grilled salmon steaks and king prawns. Finally choose a sweeter Champagne to sip with puddings."
