Weight & Pizza
Champagne and pizza sounds so carefree and ideal, but I’ve discovered that some age on the champagne really just makes this pairing that much better. Last week I tasted the best pizza-and-champagne pairing to date: 1996 Henriot with La Pizza Fresca’s white Monte Bianco pizza: Robiola, Parmigiano Reggiano, Fontina, porcini mushrooms, prosciutto di Parma. Are you still breathing? Trust me on this. The weight and maturity of the stellar, nutty 1996 Henriot enveloped the creamy and earthy Monte Bianco. My hashtag for this wine was #HandsomeBubble!
