Dessert Wine and Blue Cheese

I recently discovered pairing Point Reyes Blue Cheese with a muscat wine from Mira Flores. Have you tried this combination yet?

  1. No, but a Sauternes or Barsac from Bordeaux, or a wine like Coteaux du Layon, Bonnezeaux, or Quarts de Chaume from the Loire is a classic pairing for blue cheese . . . .

    1. Lots of good dessert wine from California to complement our American blue cheeses!

      1. If you would rather not plump for a Sauternes, try the Hogue Late Harvest Riesling with blue cheese on a walnut/raisin bread. Scrumptious!

        1. How about a South African Fleur du Cap Noble Late Harvest whilte? A very interesting and uncommon mix of 58% Semillion and 42% Riesling!!

          1. If you manage to find a very ripe, most times seems to be harder and chalkier than previously, Point Reyes try a Navarro LHCS muscat with it, match made in heaven.
