3 amazing white and cheese pairings

  - May 28, 2014

In France, we have a strong tradition of opening red wine bottles with cheese. But have you ever tried whites instead? You definitely should. To convince you, we have prepared a list of 3 whites, paired with 3 cheeses. Just try! You will never regret it.

  • Dry goat cheese with a Loire valley “sauvignon blanc”:

Famous locations as Sancerre, Pouilly-fumé, or Menetou-Salon in the Loire valley, produce dry sauvignon blanc wines that usually have a nice and refreshing acidity. The acidity will make you salivate and will balance the dryness of the local goat cheese. A simple and friendly local wine and cheese pairing!

  • Comté cheese with “savagnin” Jura wines:

Another delicious local pairing we recommend is having some comté cheese with a glass of a Côtes-du-Jura wine made with the savagnin grape (Jura is a mountainous region, north of the French Alps). This wine is oxydated during its process of elaboration, bringing nutty flavors that match very well this type of cheese. So yummy!

  • Blue cheese with Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh:

We love the strong and salty taste of a blue cheese, like Roquefort, with the sweetness and fruity Pacherenc or Jurançon wine, made in the South-west region with the “petit manseng” grape.
