This was a fun and insightful match. The sorbet was a Churchill favourite and certainly not an everyday pairing dish. 

The Bollinger Special Cuvée Brut is a Champagne with exceptional pedigree and versatility. The red fruit aromas come from the pinot noir, blended with a reserve wine of blended pinot noir, chardonnay and meunier, spanning 25 vintages. This has slightly higher dosage than the other wines at 9g/litre which lends a little to the weight that played so well with the dessert.

The citrus of sorbet found a great reply in the brioche and rich creamy character of the Bollinger. In fact there was a great tension between the two which played very well. A great choice by Carl Edmund that no doubt remained in many peoples minds!

Carl Edmund: “So we wrapped up with Churchill’s absolute paramount favourite dessert, ice cream and, more specifically, lemon sorbet in a cone. With this we had with Bollinger Special Cuvée. The reason we had this phenomenal iconic brand ambassador champagne, was because of the beautiful, illustrious citrus notes, paired with almond and toasted bread. These are notes that further developed into other characteristics as well. 

So, these citrus, almond and toasty notes, from Bollinger Special Cuvée, were perfectly paired with the lemon sorbet and cone.”
