Choice of wine, cheese and wine, choosing white wine

Choice of wine, cheese and wine, choosing white wine
© Marmiton

You can't have cheese without wine...but which should you go for? Here's how to match your cheese with your wine. 

Champagne with Parmesan: an original and stylish combination for your apéritif. Serve thinly-sliced parmesan on its own, with other ingredients or on canapés. 

Stilton, Gorgonzola, Roquefort and blue cheese with sweet wine: the wine should sweeten the strong aroma of the cheese. Loupiac, Sauternes or port work well. 

Cheddar, Red Leicester, Gruyère and hard cheeses tend to go well with full-bodied reds such as Rioja. White Burgundy and Chardonnay are also options. 

Brie and Chablis: Get hold of a Chablis that's at least a few years old, otherwise it won't be strong enough for your brie. 

Goat's cheese goes fabulously with French Sauvignon Blanc or Pouilly.
