Why is Bollinger champagne so perfect with sushi?

Because sushi are emblematic of a sophisticated and refined gourmet culture.

To do them justice they should be accompanied by a subtle wine which enhances their flavour without dominating it.

Special Cuvée and Bollinger Rosé are both ideal partners for a sushi platter. Fish has a compact texture, even oily in the case of salmon, which is wonderfully balanced by the effervescence of champagne and the body achieved through aging. These two cuvées bring lightness to the fish and pep up the sticky rice. But above all, the subtle aromas of the fish intermingle with the champagne’s aromatic range and there is an unexpected chemistry between the latter and the soy sauce, both rich in yeasts. This is a gastronomic journey that will titillate the taste buds.
