We believe that the ideal pairing for caviar, whether it's a delicate, buttery Osetra or an intensely flavorful Sevruga, is a flute of crisp, clean champagne. Nothing preserves the delicate texture of the rich pearls quite as well as champagne - not even vodka.
When you're about to savor a superb caviar in its purest, unadulterated form—unaccompanied by chopped egg, raw onion, sour cream, crème fraiche or other accoutrements—caviar's exquisite flavor is complemented best by champagne. Matching champagne's bubbles and impeccable flavor with the bursts of flavor that pop from the caviar as you roll the eggs over your tongue provides a sensory experience that's simply unmatched.
We have two “Wine Insider” wine and caviar recommendations, both are Champagnes with ultra fine bubbles that pair beautifully with Black River Russian Caviar, or any of our exceptional, buttery osetra caviar products.
"This bubbly displays an extraordinary elegance that can be enjoyed anytime between now and the next decade, peaking around 2012 in our estimate. Don’t miss this relative bargain thriller!"
“Le Mesnil” is produced by the owners of a famous vineyard near Epernay in the heart of the Champagne region of France.
This is the same vineyard source for SALON’s famous Brut Blanc de Blancs "le Mesnil" ($325/bottle) and KRUG’s rare "Clos de Mesnil" ($425/bottle).
This wine is offered at a mere fraction of those prices because these producers are totally under the radar.
“Le Mesnil achieves a striking balance of deliciously finessed fruit flavor and the most captivating “tiny bubbles” we’ve found in a Champagne under $100. An inner core of perfumed fruit including apples and pears plus toasted brioche and a hint of toffee on the sublime finish. This bubbly displays an extraordinary elegance that can be enjoyed anytime between now and the next decade, peaking around 2012 in our estimate. Don’t miss this relative bargain thriller! 95 points” — The Wine Insiders

The first joint wine venture of the Rothschild clan (Châteaux Lafite, Châteaux Mouton, and Châteaux Clarke), Barons de Rothschild Blanc de Blanc Champagne is elegant, lively and clean, a perfect pairing with exceptional caviar. Made from 100% Chardonnay gathered from the Côte des Blanc’s signature crus.
"Gorgeous aromatics of citrus, almonds and dried apricots gush out of the glass leading to exotic notes of hazelnuts, buttery brioche and crème brulee on the palate. Incredible richness and finesse remains fresh and lively with bright citrus notes and white peaches. Finely chiseled bubbles give a creamy texture, elegant and distinguished. A true class act." — The Wine Insiders
