Forget the wheel, forget electricity, Cheese and Wine are unquestionably two of the greatest things ever created by man! And France produces some of the finest examples of both. Tonight we'll be exploring many of the classic cheese and wine pairings that the home of gastonomy has to offer.
From Ossau-Iraty to Roquefort, creamy Camembert to nutty Comte, there is a huge diversity of delicious French cheeses that match perfectly to the local wines, arguably the best in the world. As well as tasting the delicious combinations, we'll also talk about food and wine matching more generally, and you'll pick up some really good tips to take away and practice at home, and we'll learn all about the grape varieties and wine regions of France as we go.
We'll try 7 different cheese and wine combinations, and while they will vary a bit from tasting to tasting, will include at least some of the following:
- Chavignon Goats' Cheese with Sancerre
- Roquefort and Sauternes
- Epoisses with White Burgundy
- Mont d'Or and Chateauneuf-du-Pape
- Camembert with Chablis
- Emmental de Savoie and Champagne
- Reblochon with Bordeaux
