Wine tasting notes

If you're in the mood for a truly luxurious champagne experience, then you need to get your hands on a bottle of Ruinart "R" de Ruinart Brut NV. This top-of-the-line champagne is produced by the prestigious Ruinart house, which has been making world-class bubbly since 1729. The "R" in the name stands for "recherche", which means "research" in French - and it's easy to see why this champagne is called that. It's a blend of three different vintages, each of which has been aged for at least three years. This helps to give the finished product a complex flavor profile that is absolutely delicious.

Food matching

There is nothing like Champagne for setting a celebratory mood. A glass as an aperitif is always a treat, but it is also a surprisingly versatile food partner. It can take on a range of foods, including all kinds of fish and seafood in most preparations, including smoked and even raw, as in oysters, sushi or sashimi. It can even take the heat when matched with Chinese, Indian and Thai food, though make sure that the chilli doesn't overpower the other spices. Michel Roux suggests the following matches: cheese, poppy or almond straws; salt cod and crab fritters; mini fish balls and salad Monte-Cristo (lobster, egg and potato). And with a Kir Royale - Champagne with a touch of Crème de Cassis - try chilli coconut-fried tiger prawns.
