Can you name a better duo than Champagne and Fried Chicken? … Didn’t think so.

There is nothing like biting down into a crispy, juicy and salty piece of fried chicken and washing it down with a glass of sparkling wine.

This pairing works so well because the acidity in the wine cuts the grease, refreshes your palate, and brings the fruit-forward in your champagne.

Take a look at a few options:

Grongnet, Blanc de Blancs Brut NV
bright and citrusy.
Chartogne-Taillet, ‘Cuvée Ste. Anne’ NV
fresh, crisp, citrusy.
Laherte Fréres, ‘Ultradition’ NV 
citrusy and fresh
Marguet, ‘Shaman’ Grand Cru Extra Brut Champagne 2017
crisp and savory.
