The Russians love
to chase this luxury item with a shot of ice-cold vodka, but for
me, the wine choice is clear: Champagne, the finer the better.
This works not only because it's simply indulgent, one of the
world's most pricey foods with a high-end wine; moreover,
Champagne's tiny bubbles evoke a textural comparison with the
grainy nature of fine caviar ... and the crisp, tart nature of
Champagne nicely balances the salty fishiness of the caviar.
