Most people would first think to open a bottle of red wine when it comes to eating cheese
but in most cases they would be wrong! That is true that generally speaking, white wine
goes better with cheese as it allows to have a more interesting harmony between the
cheese and the wine flavours.
Below are some of our wine pairing recommendations depending on the cheese type:
Go for a dry or semi-dry white wine with a good acidity like a Chabils, a Sancerre, a
Muscaset or even a Pinot Gris.
Go for a sweet wine like a Sauternes, a Gewurztraminer or a Muscat de Beaume de Venise
Soft-Ripened Cheese like Camembert or Brie cheese
Go for a red wine here ! You could possibly go for a Pinot Noir or a Sancerre but for a
camembert we would recomment a Côtes-du-Rhône !
PRESSED CHEESE (Cheddar, cantel, tomme,…)
Go for a light white wine here like most of the white wines from the Burgundy region would
work really well.
HARD PRESSED CHEESE (Comté, parmesan)
Go for a strong dry white wine here like a Riesling or VIN JAUNE JURA
This is some of our wine and cheese pairing recommendations. We hope some of you will
fin dit useful !
