Fromages et Vin Rosé: l’Accord Fraîcheur (07/21)

On July 21st, French Cheese Board hosted another memorable event with Anna M. Viducic of Aroma Wine Co: Fromage & Rosé. 

Who doesn’t love French cheese and a glass of chilled rosé on a summer day?

Anna has previously taught a French Wine & Cheese class with us and it was a huge success!

This time, Anna selected four different rosés to pair with seven French cheeses:

  • M. Chapoutier Belleruche Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2021 paired with Le Roulé (a hand-rolled cow’s milk cheese with garlic and herbs from the Vosges), and Feta-style Valbreso (a fresh sheep’s milk cheese from Occitanie).
  • Mathilde Chapoutier Grand Ferrage Côtes de Provence Rosé 2021 with St-Nectaire (a washed-rind cow’s milk cheese from Auvergne), and Comté (a raw cow’s milk cheese from the Jura Mountains).
  • Mathilde Chapoutier Grand Ferrage Sainte-Victoire Côtes de Provence 2021 paired with Ossau Iraty (a sheep’s milk cheese from the Basque region), and Fourme d’Ambert (a cow’s milk blue cheese from Auvergne).
  • Piper-Heidsieck Champagne Rosé Sauvage NV paired with a buttery triple cream from the Champagne region – our favorite of the evening!
“We overall played with the different cheese textures to figure out what pairing works best. We always have a fantastic time at the French Cheese Board.” – Anna M. Viducic

Some pairings were better than others but everything was so delicious!

Thanks to our wonderful guests for showing up and sharing a great time with us!
