I love cheese. And I adore Camembert a gently-aged cheese cow's milk cheese with a creamy texture and a bloomy white rind. It begins as a relatively mild semi-soft wheel, but grows runnier and more robustly flavored with age.
Camembert and a glass of wine, well that’s a pretty good combination, anytime, anywhere. The wine that comes to mind is not a likely suspect, but is among very few ‘perfect pairings’ for Camembert – in my opinion. First, I’d like to share a simple recipe in which Camembert and wine work very well together.
It may sound semi-indulgent to enjoy a Camembert and a rich, fruity sparkling wine, but you do only live once. This sparkler from Australia is a traditional blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. A hint of fresh fruit carries the palate through layers of minerality and richness.
