5 Reasons to Love Sparkling Wine

My top 5 reasons to pop the cork!

...but it doesn't seem fair to have just five!

 

 

  1. I love the sound of a cork being popped. It's joyous! Champagne experts advise that the cork should sound like a sigh when it's removed properly. I say "no way". I like to hear the pop.

  2. I love to see it being poured into a glass as the tiny bubbles bring the wine to life. I tilt the glass slightly to preserve the bubbles rather than have them dissipate into foam.

  3. I love to see the bubbles rising from the bottom of a champagne flute. It's trendy these days to drink sparkling wine from a wider glass. I know it enhances the aromas, but it kills the bubbles and the flute just feels more elegant.

  4. I love the sensation of the bubbles tickling my tongue like little stars exploding on the tastebuds. All the more reason to preserve those bubbles!

  5. I love that sparkling wines go with such a wide array of foods. We often have a bottle of sparkling with dinner, especially with spicy foods that are hard to pair with other wines.

I already have my next five reasons. What are yours?
