Wine and Cheese Pairing: What Cheese Pairs with Chenin Blanc

The classic pairing of wine and cheese can be as simple or as sophisticated as you make it out to be. Just as I stated in my article, “Food and Wine Pairings, what wine goes with what food” the matching of food and wine is to harmonize and enhance the flavors of both the food and wine, it is the exact same premise with wine and cheese. As with any pairing the first rule of thumb is to eat and drink what you like, no matter what the said “rules” are; and again, there are no “rules”, just guidelines, and suggestions to enhance your pairing experience.

Wine and Cheese pairing is a match made in heaven, you’ve got flavors and textures that run as wild as can be, and on the flip side, you’ve got those same flavors and textures that run mellow and tame. I’ve created a series of wine & cheese pairing breakout articles (from the original) where I’ve focused on one wine matched with various cheeses. Some of the wines and cheeses will be familiar to you, and others break you out of what is common and proverbial. The suggestions are just that, suggestions, the pairings will work for some and not others. The parings will get you thinking; they will open doors and take you on a journey you otherwise may not have embarked on.

South Florida Food and Wine Pairing

Chenin Blanc is indiginous to France’s Loire Valley and is also found in South Africa, where it is referred to as Steen, with some plantings in the United States. Chenin Blanc is a white wine ranging in taste from dry to sweet, with noticeable fruits of apple, melon, lime and pear.

Cheese that pairs well with Chenin Blanc Wine:

Camembert - soft, creamy cow’s milk cheese

Danish Blue – A  strong semi-soft creamy cheese with blue-veined made from cow’s milk
