According to research, up to 58% of Americans consume sandwiches once a week. Taking it further into the European culture, we confirmed pairing a sandwich with wine is one of the best satisfying tastes anyone could ever get. However, the best pairing is interestingly found in Italian sandwiches and exotic wine. You may often come across this combination in many American restaurants, and that’s because it’s fast becoming everyone’s favorite.
Philly Cheesesteak and California Cabernet Sauvignon
The rich, savory flavors of a Philly cheesesteak, with its thinly sliced beefsteak and melted cheese, complement the bold characteristics of a California Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine’s robust tannins and dark fruit notes, like blackberry and plum, can balance the richness of the sandwich. Therefore, it creates a harmonious pairing experience. The wine’s acidity can also cut through the cheese and meat, enhancing the overall dining pleasure.
Fried Chicken with Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Fried chicken and Blanc de Blancs Champagne create a delightful pairing due to the contrast in flavors. The crispy, savory notes of fried chicken complement the crisp acidity and effervescence of Blanc de Blancs, enhancing the overall dining experience. The Champagne’s citrusy and mineral undertones can cut through the richness of the fried chicken. Therefore, it creates a balanced and satisfying combination of textures and tastes.
Croque Madame with Brut Nature Champagne
A Croque Madame is a classic French sandwich with ham, cheese, and béchamel sauce, topped with a fried or poached egg. The rich and savory flavors of the sandwich complement the crispness of Brut Nature Champagne, creating a delightful pairing. The Champagne’s dryness and effervescence help cut through the dish’s richness, balancing the flavors for a satisfying culinary experience.
Roasted Turkey with Pinot Noir
Roasted turkey pairs well with Pinot Noir due to the wine’s versatile profile. The turkey’s savory flavors complement the red berry, cherry, and earthy notes in Pinot Noir, creating a balanced and harmonious combination. The wine’s moderate tannins and acidity help cut through the richness of the roasted meat, enhancing the overall dining experience.
Smoked Salmon and Cucumber with Chablis
Smoked salmon’s rich, savory flavors complement the crispness of Chablis wine. The wine’s high acidity cuts through the salmon’s richness, while its minerality enhances the dish. Cucumber adds a refreshing element, harmonizing with Chablis’s bright and citrusy notes, creating a well-balanced pairing experience.
Scallop Slider with Rosé Champagne
A scallop slider is a small sandwich typically made with seared scallops, often accompanied by complementary ingredients like aioli or slaw. Pairing it with rosé Champagne enhances the dining experience by bringing out the delicate flavors of the scallops. It also complements the dish with the sparkling wine’s crisp acidity and subtle fruit notes. The effervescence of rosé Champagne can also provide a refreshing contrast to the richness of the scallops.
