Pairing Caviar and Wine

Experience the fanciest of pairings this holiday season

So here are a few pointers that one can learn from this pairing:
1) If you’re going to pair caviar with an unknown array of Sparkling wines, go for the American Bowfin. It’s delicious, a great deal, and strongly flavored enough to stand up to most sparkling wines.
2) The finer the caviar flavors, the more difficult they are to pair. It’s easy to overwhelm the subtlety of the finest caviar so if you’re splurging on the fish eggs, splurge on the wine as well.
3) Modest sweetness in a sparkling wine is not a bad thing when it comes to pairing them with Caviar. The drier of these wines was as difficult to pair as the sweetest ones. Someplace in the middle was the easiest.
4) This pairing is no different than any other. Match the intensity of flavors first and you should be in fine shape to enjoy your holidays!
