Martin Isark has Tasted Choco Friendly Fizz

NV_BB_CIENNA

Want to impress with a bottle of fizz that will complement that Easter chocolate? Forget champagne or dry fizz, unless you’ve managed to track-down a shelf that sells the sweet version, it will have Rich or Doux on the label. Why? Most of the fizz, is Brut or Extra Brut, dry or seriously dry. This style of fizz will make you tastebuds recoil in horror when mixed Chocolate Easter Eggs, Iced Easter Cake or that box of milky chocolates. Save the dry stuff for the savoury nibbles. 

Of course sweet sparklers, don’t have the cache of super-premium champagnes, but their heady sweet floral aromas and flavours are a match made in heaven for all things sweet. And in most cases they’ll cost you less than a ten quid.
