Tips on Champagne for the Perfect Mother’s Day

15th March 2023

French Breakfast

With Mother’s Day just around the corner the Champagne Bureau UK* wanted to share their perfect Champagne pairings to celebrate. Whether you’re planning a relaxing day at home or a big celebration, choosing the correct style of Champagne can be a difficult task, but here are some tips to guide you on how to find the perfect Champagne to celebrate.

A Champagne Breakfast

Serve freshly prepared pancakes or waffles with lots of fresh berries, a thin layer of icing sugar, a dollop of crème fraîche or Greek yogurt, and a sprinkle of freshly grated lime or orange zest. This will pair perfectly with a non-vintage Champagne Brut with its liveliness, minerality and notes of citrus fruits and white flowers. A non-vintage brut is characteristically an essential classic Champagne that pairs beautifully with everything and is an excellent way to kick off Mother’s Day.

A Champagne Roast

If you have got a traditional Sunday roast planned this Mother’s Day then opt for a Champagne with punch such as a Blanc de Noirs. Blanc de Noirs refers to a Champagne made from black grape varieties alone such as Pinot Noir or Meunier. These wines generally give an impression of power, density and structure when compared to those wines with white grapes in their blend. This gives the wines a powerful body with notes of white and yellow fruits – an excellent companion to the complex flavours of the red meats that you might choose for your roast.

A Sweet Day

Mother’s Day calls for your Mum’s favourite desserts such as strawberry fruit tart which will go exceptionally well with a delicate and fruity Rosé Champagne. Vibrantly coloured and sophisticated, Rosé Champagnes can boast notes of freshness or even aromas that are smoother and more powerful – any of these variations will add something to your dessert. Alternatively, if your expertise is along the lines of homemade pavlova covered in berries and exotic fruit, why not opt for a sweeter Champagne such as a Sec or Demi-sec – a Champagne Sec is a Champagne containing between 17 and 32 grams of sugar per litre and a Champagne Demi-Sec contains between 32 and 50 grams of sugar per litre – both would perfectly complement your creation.
