Cheese and Booze Pairings

Last night the Tour de France Restaurant Group kicked off its annual Stinky Cheese Festival with an opening party featuring cheesy bites paired with wine and beer. The week long festival brings cheese-centric menus to their many locations in New York City including: Nice Matin, Marseilles, Café D’Alsace, French Roast, Le Monde, L’Express, Maison and Pigalle.

Even if you aren’t in New York, though, you can  still enjoy some delicious cheese/booze pairings. Here are my top three pairings from the party:

Brie Tour de Marze is a popular creamy French brie that has a mushroomy aroma and a nutty flavor. Pair with a Pinot Gris or Rose.

Petit Pont L’Eveque cheese from the Normandy region of France is reminiscent of a Camembert. Pair with a Bordeaux or Burgundy.


The evening was finished on a sweet and salty note with Blue Cheese ice cream and walnuts paired with a white dessert wine.
