Chateau Recougne Bordeaux Superieur
[From majestik.co.uk] Fleshy and robust, full of ripe black fruit accented with hints of mocha, smoke and toast. Plenty of fine-grained tannins providing prodigious grip and savoury texture.
Apple Smoked Gouda
Description: [From Cheese Maker’s Website]
Our cheeses are 100% all natural and promote a healthy way of life. Our smoked cheeses are slowly & meticulously, naturally cold-smoked for six hours using a special aged Apple pulp and hardwood to achieve our unique flavor profile.
This is a full bodied, delicious wine. I admit we did not taste any of the flavors the wine maker described but I’m not sure I’d want to taste “smoke and toast” in a wine so no loss. Still, it was a lovely wine to pair with some beef sausage and cheese. The smell was pleasant. The wine wasn’t too bitter. A good Bordeaux!
I believe we’ve already given this cheese a thumbs up. It has a strong flavor that pairs excellently with sausage and crackers. We enjoy snacking on it during the winter. Mmm!
