Fish and seafood: particularly lobster and crab legs, whose richness (likely accompanied by drawn butter) is a perfect foil for the sparkling wine’s acidity and bubbles. Also shrimp, caviar, smoked salmon, and oysters.
The aged mountain cheeses of France and Switzerland, with their dense-yet-elastic pastes and flavors of brown butter and roasted hazelnuts, are happy bedfellows with the perfectly golden toastiness of a good Spumante. The wine's relentless yet finely delicate bubble manages to respect the cheese's texture while loosening and lightening it in the mouth. Comte tends to be sweeter and "Swissier," Gruyere nuttier, Appenzeller or Challerhocker spicier.
