Champagne and Caviar is not simply one of "the" party pairings, it's also a classic example of a complimentary food pairing. The lightness of texture and intensity exhibited by both elements helps to form a seamless experience. There is a hint of contrast here though as the fruit of the wine plays off of the salty tang of the caviar, further drawing out the complexity of both.
