Muscadet Drouet is a lovely, refreshingly crisp white with all the usual vivacity that the Loire is famous for. Made from Melon de Bourgogne grapes it boasts a luscious apple bouquet, which is both crisp and dry on the palate. It is a great wine with delicate and distinguished flavours.
For the cheese, we have 4 classic French cheeses to really show of the taste of France.
Epoisses is known as one of the smelliest cheeses, but if you can get past the smell, it is incredible. Its flavour is rich and powerful having notes of spice, meat and saltiness as well as having hints of earthiness and nuts. Epoisses is a complex cheese but one for those who LOVE cheese.
Brie de Meaux is a raw, soft unpasteurised cow’s milk cheese covered with a bloomy rind made 50km from Paris. This brie has a milky and rich taste underlined by sweet and buttery flavours of mushrooms or truffles and almonds.
Comte is dense, open and smooth – basically everything you want in a hard cheese, coming with beautiful smooth, nutty and salty flavours. This particular Comte is aged 18 months to deepen the flavour and allow some crystals to develop.
Fourme d’Ambert is creamy, dense and subtle cheese is full of delightful savoury, sharp, smooth and tangy flavours. It is known as “the connoisseurs blue” for it’s unique mildness and balanced flavour. This cheese remains to this day the benchmark for a mild blue cheese.
Our utmost concern is get you the right cheese in the right condition right to your door. All orders are posted on a next day service so as not to spend too much time in transit. Each package will come with a gel ice pack to keep the temperature in the box as low as possible.
