Champagne Taittinger Prélude Grands Crus
Today we celebrate a true superfood: the egg! Emma Morano of Italy, who lived 117 years and 137 days before her passing in April 2017, ate three or more eggs a day since her twenties when she was diagnosed with anemia. I love eggs, and they are a daily staple in my diet for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There is a discussion that eggs like asparagus are tricky to pair with wine. Still, I have found them easily paired with Champagne in their purest form, such as sunnyside, poached, scrambled, or in an omelet. For decadence, you can give your scrambled eggs or omelet a splash of Champagne before frying; it gives them a little something special. A classic Champagne such as Taittinger Prelude pairs amazingly well with eggs! It cuts through the richness of the yolk, cleanses the palate, and complements the toast or French fries; you’ll need to sop up your sunnyside eggs as I do. How do you like your eggs?
