I still remember my surprise at tasting Krug Champagne for the first time. It was exceedingly elegant, but at the same time offered richness of flavor and power that I'd never expected to find in a champagne glass. Or at least I didn't until I tasted sparkling shiraz from Australia.
If you're interested in exploring the gutsier side of champagne and sparkling wine, then come visit my class "The Bold & The Beautiful" at the upcoming San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival. I'll be exploring some of my favorite intensely flavored sparkling wines and champagnes and pairing them with some deliciously unexpected foods.
