We all dream of a romantic Spring picnic in the park with the iconic Eiffel Tower in the background, perhaps on a Sunday afternoon to while away the last hours of the weekend.
Right now, closed international and state borders have postponed those plans for a little longer, but don’t fret – there’s a super-easy way for you to transport yourself and your date to the City of Love this Spring with French Champagne!
Bring out the chequered blanket, picnic basket, a bottle of Champagne Tsarine and you’ll be sure to achieve the romantic vibe you are looking for. If you want to impress your partner a bit extra, make sure to match the Champagne with the following pairings:
Subtle golden hues highlight the aspect of this cuvée, imparting brightness and elegance; while its delicate effervescence is enhanced by a chorus of fine bubbles.
Pair this drop with a tapas spread, an avocado salmon poké bowl, cheese like Abondance (mountain cheese from the French Alps), Parmesan, or gruyère de comét from Eastern France.
With a ruby pink colour, this cuvée is striking due to its great depth and exquisite brightness; lively bubbles transport this gourmet Champagne to new heights with merry enthusiasm.
The fresh, fruit flavour works perfectly with a picnic spread of fresh fruit, soft cheese and colourful macarons; or a refreshing plate of sea bream tartare on rice crackers.
After your picnic, come home and light a candle, put on the movie Amelie from Montmartre and you’re all set for the ultimate French experience.
