We tend to associate Champagne with holidays and celebrations. I always say there is no reason why you can’t enjoy a glass (or two) any day of the week. Champagne is an incredibly versatile wine with healthful benefits, so why not treat it as more of an everyday libation?
Champagne goes well with so much more than its traditional pairings like strawberries, oysters and caviar. Champagne is exceptionally refreshing with rich or creamy foods, and I love the way it complements the flavors of fish and seafood (especially lobster), earthy mushroom dishes, deviled eggs and even salty snacks like popcorn and chips!
In the last few years, there have been numerous articles reporting that, like red wine, Champagne contains antioxidants that are healthy for your brain and heart. Champagne is also a great option if you’re watching your waistline. With less than 100 calories per glass, the calorie content of Champagne is lower than that of most alcoholic beverages.
At Ocean Prime, we offer Champagne by the glass, so you won’t have to splurge on an entire bottle in order to enhance your dining experience with bubbly. The next time you’re searching for a great wine to pair with your meal, go for a crisp, refreshing Champagne. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
