No celebration is complete without Champagne, especially the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. While Thanksgiving is uniquely American, traditional Thanksgiving dishes pair best with the sparkling wine that is uniquely French, Champagne.
Bottles may vary in style, body, and sweetness, but Champagne is versatile enough to carry you through the entire Thanksgiving meal. The effervescent nature of the wine easily transitions among different flavors and textures. The infographic below describes how to pair Champagne with traditional Thanksgiving foods.
Often high in acid and bright in taste, Champagne is perfect to indulge in high-fat, salty food, exactly what Thanksgiving menus are comprised of. Baked brie, Turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy are just some of the Thanksgiving staples that pair perfectly with Champagne wines.
As always, the Champagne Bureau, USA is here to help if you have any questions or would like to feature Champagne and holiday food pairings. The image can be downloaded for you to post or share at this link (credit: Champagne Bureau, USA).
