Wine and Cheese

I am giving a gift of a marble wine board, and I would like to jazz up the gift by offering a list of great wine and cheese pairings. Please let me know your favorites so I can add them to the book. Specific wines and cheeses would be great; i also welcome board varietals and their match. Anything you can offer, i appreciate.

  1. What's a marble wine board?

    My absolute favorite pairing is ripe raw-milk Reblochon with an inexpensive, earthy young Bordeaux such as Cotes de Bourg.

    1. re: Robert Lauriston

      a slab of marble on which to serve cheese.

    2. soft tangy goat cheese with sancerre. gooey mild triple creme with champagne.

      1. Noshing at the recent ZAP tasting in San Francisco rekindled my amazement at how delicious kuminost is with young Zinfandel. The Old Amsterdam aged gouda offered up was also delicious with the zins, but it is great with almost any wine.

        1. A nice, ripe brie and a bottle of Calera Mt. Harlan Viognier...unbelievable!

          1. Strong English Cheddar served with honey, seville orange marmalade, nuts, dried apricots and a bright malty ale.
