Let’s talk bubblies (and beyond)

It’s no secret that an oyster’s best friend is Champagne — the chalky, mineral qualities of France’s most famous sparkling wine lends itself perfectly to briny, metallic oysters. You’d want to head for something super dry like the Heidsieck & Co. Monopole “Goût American” Extra Dry NV (available from Atlas); or Bollinger’s exceptional R.D Extra Brut. There’s also the relatively new Ultra Brut category, pioneered by Champagne house Laurent Perrier, where there’s absolutely no dosage added (available from Millesima). Grower Champagnes are also an exciting alternative; as well as English sparklings like Nyetimber

Pet-nats, which by definition also have no dosage, are also a possibility with oysters. Try the Benjamina from Catalunya producers Artesano Vintners, which is made from a blend of Macabeau and Xarel-lo grapes (available from RAW Wines) with richer, creamier oysters. 

In the flat category — Chablis is always a safe bet, although the better examples of Albarino or Sancerre will also be perfect with their high-acid, mineral profiles. Pinot Grigio is also a good pick.
