Champagne Taittinger Brut la Française
Today is National Oyster Day, so go get your slurp on! Did you know that oysters tend to take on the characteristics of the water they live in? They are typically named after the body of water where they grow, therefore the competition of “who’s better” between East Coast vs West Coast continues! East Coast oysters are saltier, larger in size with a paisley shape, while West Coast oysters are smaller, milder in saltiness with a melon or cucumber taste profile. Whether you are an East Coast or West Coast oyster lover, I recommend pairing your platter with a beautiful bottle of Champagne Taittinger, which has a complementary set of umami flavors for any type of oyster.
