Food2Wine: Goats' cheeses to a glass of white Burgundy
There is a whole discussion about which kind of wine works best with cheese - and we're just talking about the colour of the wine eg red or white. Here we explore a white wine and goats' cheeses.
The cheeses (with the St Aubin):
Clacbitou – Burgundian goat’s cheese – creamy and chalky. Good.
Le Trefle de Perche – with ash. Very mild but the texture is harder which gives it more grip. Good.
Crottin de Chavignol (Loire goat). Good combination.
Caves de Berry (Loire) this herb coated cheese with juniper berries fills the palate and the cream and herbs did well with the wine.
The cheeses with the M&S Montage 1er Cru:
Clacbitou – the cheesier flavour overcame the wine.
Le Trefle de Perche – this accentuated the acidity and freshness of the wine. The finish with both was prolonged. Good.
Crottin de Chavignol (Loire goat). This accentuated the mid-palate loss.
Caves de Berry (Loire). Worked surprisingly well probably because of the fruit.
