Pairing Caviar and Wine

Experience the fanciest of pairings this holiday season

NV Laurent Perrier Ultra Brut

Paired with:
 
Salmon Roe: This highlights the quince flavor in the wine but doesn’t do much for the caviar, though the combination is really round and lush in the mouth.
 
America's Pride Golden Herring: This just strips the wine with the acidity popping out of balance, but it does bring out a cleanliness in the caviar.
 
American Bowfin: This is remarkable, banana fruit pops on entry, then the caviar flavor kicks in enveloped by the rich, round fruit flavors that end on a singing pineapple note underlain by the clear mineral saline character of the caviar. A winner!
 
American Paddlefish: Smoky and earthy flavors bring out the richness of both the wine and the caviar, but leave an impression of dull flavor at the same time.
 
American Hackleback: Very fine, this pairing really brings out the complexity of the wine and the caviar notes are well wrapped up in the long, gossamer fruit. Lovely snap of brine and acid on the finish is refreshing.
