Why You Should Drink Bubbles At Brunch

Morning is a prime time to drink sparkling wine. Unbelievable, isn’t it? Trust scientists and gourmet experts who prove this fact. First of all, morning is a period in which we have the cleanest palette, but it is also when our palettes are most awake to its flavours. But there’s another reason to pop up a bottle of bubbles at brunch. The recent research explored the chemical composition between certain brunch dishes and bubbly drinks. The savoury taste of umami - one of the five basic food tastes - is a flavour enhancer, which works particularly well with sparkling wines due to its high free glutamate levels. The combination of ham / salmon and eggs, key elements in many brunch dishes, is rich in umami and when teamed with the umami-receptive minerals of bubbly wines is a perfect formula.
