Cheese & Wine – Epoisse with Syrah!

Bonnie & Leon at our French Cheese & Wine Tasting

This afternoon we met up with Bonnie and Leon from Georgia for our cheese and wine tasting. Our favorite combination was definitely the Epoisse cheese paired with a St. Joseph red (100% Syrah). The red was from Domaine Coursodon and the pairing was simply outstanding!! The bottle of St. Joseph was a recommendation from the man who works at our favorite wine shop here in Aix called Cave du Felibrige. We are in luck as far as timing is concerned because Brian is off to go wine tasting in Saint Etienne this next weekend and Domaine Coursodon is along the way. He’ll definitely pick up a few cases of this wine for our future tastings (and personal consumption). So far, we have found that pairing wines with food, cheese, or chocolate often goes like this…there are several very good combinations with one AMAZING combination that remains in your memory for a long time.
