Champagne and vodka are classic pairings for caviar. The former matches luxury with luxury, while the latter speaks to the common homelands for both products. Champagne\u2019s acidity and bubbles and vodka\u2019s crisp booziness are perfect foils for the richness and saltiness of cured roe.\r\n\r\nBut luxury is about choice, and there are plenty of other options that pair just as well, if not better. Learn how your favorite type of caviar can pair with your preferred drink.\r\nCalifornia White Sturgeon\r\nCara Patricia, cofounder and sommelier of DecantSF in San Francisco, says matching weight and intensity is important when you pair wine with caviar. A style that\u2019s too full bodied, overoaked or tannic will go very wrong, she says.\r\n\r\nTo avoid yeasty, brioche characteristics and new oak that could overwhelm this delicate and even-keeled caviar, she likes medium-bodied ros\u00e9 from Provence like Ch\u00e2teau Vanni\u00e8res C\u00f4tes\u2028de Provence Ros\u00e9. The Cinsault- Grenache-Mourv\u00e8dre blend has plenty of acidity and light fruitiness.\r\n\r\n"Luxury is about choice, and there are plenty of other options that pair just as well, if not better."\r\n\r\nOsetra\r\nWith the intense nutty, maritime flavor and buttery texture of this caviar, Patricia favors the notes of Marcona almond and preserved lemon that are present in a dry, briny fino Sherry, especially from Fernando de Castilla. \u201cThe bright acidity of the fino Sherry pops with the natural saltiness of the Osetra pearls, separating the beads into individual bubbles that burst with hidden sweetness when you roll it around on the mouth,\u201d she says.\r\nOsetra-Siberian Hybrid\r\nPerhaps not surprisingly, Pete Slosberg, founder of Pete\u2019s Brewing Company in San Antonio, prefers beer with caviar. He says that the eggs\u2019 salinity, nuttiness, oiliness and richness afford plenty of complementary and contrasting beer options. With this nutty, robust, sweet-finishing hybrid, he points to a wheat beer with breadiness and slight tartness, like Eagle Rock Brewery\u2019s Manifesto.\r\n\r\n\u201cThe citric character from the orange cuts through [richness], and the beer is not bitter, but slightly spicy from coriander seed,\u201d he says.\r\n\r\n\r\nWhatever Caviar You Like\r\nAldo Sohm, wine director at Le Bernardin and Aldo Sohm Wine Bar in New York City, is an advocate of sak\u00e9 alongside just about any caviar. He believes the flavor profile of caviar changes depending upon the batch, which can make pairing a challenge.\r\n\r\nSak\u00e9 works, he says, due to its clean flavor, lower acidity, textural options and overall versatility.
