Pastoral's Cheese & Wine Pairing of the Week
Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine's pairing of the week includes Domaine Sauvète Oneiros and Little Napoleon. Try out this pairing to experience the perfect combination!
The Wine: Starts with a funky apricot on the nose. Juicy start with a pleasant biter minerality at the end. The famous Loire slate minerality is ever present.
The Cheese: The Cheese is clean on the nose. Very gentle with an ever so slight fresh wet cut grass smell. The texture is dreamy. It's toothsome and fudgy. This is an excellent entry level goat cheese.
The Magic: In the case of this pairing I believe the cheese helps make the wine better rather than the traditional vice versa. For me, when the two meet the wine flip flops in order. In my mouth the cheese pops the minerality in the wine at the start and it leaves me with a bigger juicier finish. I wish we had come up with this during the heat of the summer because I feel confident in predicting the word "refreshing" is really all you need to describe this pairing.
