Oyster & Champagne: Best Match

In a recent publication in Nature Scientific Reports, Professor Ole Mouritsen and lead author Charlotte Vinther Schmidt unveil the first scientific exploration into the harmonious synergy between oysters and champagne. Contrary to conventional wisdom associating umami with meat, Professor Mouritsen identifies the umami taste in both oysters and champagne as the secret behind their delightful pairing. Umami, recognized as savoriness, emerges as a fundamental flavor alongside sweet, salty, bitter, and sour.

The study further elucidates the chemical collaboration in champagne and oysters that ignites an “umami synergy,” significantly enhancing the champagne’s taste. Charlotte Vinther Schmidt emphasizes the role of champagne’s acidity and bubbles in contributing to the overall impression. Professor Mouritsen recommends older vintage champagnes, rich in dead yeast cells, for their superior umami flavor, while the umami in oysters is attributed to their muscular composition.

What our customers say

Telmo

A 100% amazing tapas tour in Barcelona. We booked the Tapas Tour experience with this company, and it couldn't have gone better. They took us to places away from the crowded tourist areas, and all the bars we visited were very special and authentic. The quality of the tapas surprised us. What we liked the most was the guide; we ended up becoming friends and exchanging phone numbers. Highly recommended. 100%

Dale

We booked a private tapas tour and enjoyed every moment of it. Diego took excellent care of us, and we had the opportunity to sample exquisite tapas and wine. It was so fantastic that we also scheduled a winery visit with them. They took us to a magnificent bodega where we had a memorable tour with a guided tasting paired with a delicious lunch just for us.
