750 mL, a pretty good wine blog, wrote a review about a week ago about the NV Brut Dargent, a pretty good sparkler that we have for just $8.99.

I blogged a while back about how my wife's coworker sometimes brings us farm fresh eggs, and we make Carbonara. At the time, I wrote about the Marquis de la Tour sparkling wine, and how the bubbles cut through the richness of the eggs. This is my second choice for Carbonara.

I like the Marquis de la Tour more than the Brut Dargent, but like the blogger at 750mL, I find it satisfying. I don't mind the"dry, steely finish" that wears on him, and it has no relation to a bottle of Andre.

I would take this over a Prosecco or a Cava any time.


ps. While the recipe I linked uses bacon, pancetta is both more authentic and better tasting in the dish. Pancetta is bacon that was cured but not smoked. Of the other recipes I found, one uses cream and another uses garlic. Not only are they not Carbonara, the dishes aren't anywhere near as good.
