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 share the taste of France…
Langres This cheese is washed in champers, giving the cheese a great flavour! It is slightly chalky on the inside and gooey towards the rind! Due to the wash, the rind is more punchy but the cheese itself is sweet and delicious. Langres 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 connoisseur’s blue” for it’s unique mildness and balanced flavour. This cheese remains to this day the benchmark for a mild blue cheese.
