Wine and Cheese
Cheese and wine are best when paired. So here are some of the best wine and their tasting notes that goes perfectly good with cheese.
La Moynerie Sur Loire 2014
Should be served with shellfish, crustaces, pickled fish, and aslo receipts besically done with cheese.
Clos Des Verdots – Cotes Bergerac Moelleux 2014
A sweet, well-balanced wine without heaviness. Ideal as an aperitif, with foie gras, chocolate cake, and fruit tarts.
Clavel Le Mas 2013
Intense nose of red fruit, juicy, ripe, spices. Fresh attack, well balanced, crunchy fruit that calls another sip and intense finish.
