Wine Pairing: Old Champagne


The greatest of wines often shine with the simplest of food partners. In this marriage, the French fries’ crispy exterior snuggles up to the toasty,

bready character of a well-aged Champagne.


The wine’s naturally vigorous acidity and lively bubbles slice through the greasiness of the fries like a scythe. And the relatively benign and innocuous flavor of potatoes allows the delicate, nuanced character of the Champagne to express itself without undue interference.


Scrimp on grub, splurge on booze: a mantra for well-executed junk food and wine pairings.
