Perfect wine pairing for goats cheese
One of the most classic wine pairings with goat cheese is a nice Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley. This French region produces both tangy goat cheeses and bright white wines with crisp acidity that intertwine perfectly. In this case though, Laurent Yung of Sommailier.com. French wine club in the US says “let’s venture out to Bordeaux!” His choice is a delicious wine that combines the roundness of Semillon with the tart acidity of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris, to mirror the sweetness brought by the honey drizzle.
Fleur des Pins Blanc is made from 50% Semillon, 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sauvignon Gris. Its aromas of honey, apricot and white flowers will pair perfectly with the honey while its mouth-watering acidity will balance its medium bodied structure and make it an ideal companion to the goat cheese. The touch of toast from the oak barrel ageing will be perfect with the crunchy French baguette.
