Cheese and Champagne

A match made in heaven

We’re often asked what cheeses to pair with Champagne and sparkling wines.  Typically we might reach for a decadent and creamy triple creme brie style, or a tart and tangy goat cheese.  Both categories are a sure success with most Champagne and sparkling wine styles.  Here are a few more suggestions we’ve been enjoying this season:

Constant Bliss – Raw milk soft ripened cones from Vermont.  Earthy with mushroom and straw flavors.

Garrotxa – Firm and nutty goat cheese from Catalonia, Spain with a nutty character of toasted hazelnut flavor.

La Tur Robiola Tre Latti – An unctuous blend of cow, goat, and sheep milk with a fresh clean character, and dense/creamy texture.

Chaource – A delicious double cream snowball from the Champagne region of France.  Sweet and creamy with a slightly salty character.

Pecorino Foglie di Noci – A firm sheep cheese from Tuscany that’s been rubbed in olive oil and rolled in walnut leaves.  Sharp and salty with a flaky texture and a flinty, minerally character.
