On top of that comes the historical fight of the "pro white wine" and the "pro red wine" for cheese... And you are sure to solve the puzzle of the year. The white wine has several times shown all its interest with cheeses. But red wine is the "passion" side of the consumer that expresses itself and often wins. The wine and cheese pairing: a pairing that will always do the trick!

So if we summarize: a cheese platter with several cheeses all very different, "pros white wine" and "pros wine and cheese".pros red wine ", already some bottles emptied since the aperitif and thus inevitably some mixtures.

For the rest of the article, we could have proposed the pairings for each of the 400 French cheeses. But the challenge is not exciting enough. And sincerely, what will it bring you to know that a Pouligny-Saint-Pierre can be drunk with a Pouilly-fumé a Pont-L'Évêque with a red Burgundy or a Tomme de Savoie with a white Crozes-hermitage! If your plate proposes the 3 cheeses, you will not serve the 3 wines !

But then what wine and cheese pairing?

We propose 5 tips and wines to drink with your cheese board :

  • Wine n°1: the same wine as the main course! Yes, if you have already opened several bottles and you are afraid of a difficult tomorrow, then don't take any risk and the wine of the main course will be very good with cheeses.
  • wine n°2 : a Pouilly-fumé (Loire), a white wine that offers a good compromise and can therefore be drunk with several cheeses.
  • wine n°3 : a Petit-chablis (Burgundy), a dry and fruity white wine very pleasant before dessert.
  • wine n°4 : a Saumur-champigny (Loire), a red wine which also offers a good compromise, the counterpart of the pouilly-fumé.
  • wine n°5 : a Saint-Emilion (Bordeaux), a red wine with a good roundness which goes well with cheeses like many Bordeaux wines.

Again, many other associations are possible! The wine and cheese pairing is almost infinite. This selection offers wines that will be good compromises!
