Pairing white wine with cheese is a very common thing to do. However, you want to ensure you choose the best possible pairings so that it all tastes good going down. The goal is to bring out the very best within both the wine and the cheese, and therefore the right combination is needed. Learning can be half the fun as you work your way through the various white wines – and Pascal has a stunning wine list.
Rules to Live By
When you are looking to pair white wine with cheese, there are various things to be on the lookout for. Salt loves sweet, so when you have a sweet wine like a Riesling or a moscato, you will want to choose one of the saltier cheeses.
Cheese also goes well with fruits and nuts. If you have a wine that has a buttery finish, it can pair well with cheddar. You will also want to choose some of the fruitier wines to go with a young cheese, such as brie.
It can be okay to have rich and creamy cheeses with buttery and smooth wines, but it can also be okay to welcome some contrast, such as a bubbly and sparkling wine with a rich cheese to scrub your tongue and make you want to go in for another bite.

Camembert and Champagne is a combination that works well together, and this falls into the rule of it being okay to have some contrast with your pairing. A Sauvignon blanc works well with goat cheese, a chardonnay works well with triple cream, and you can even go with a bubbly white wine like prosecco with asiago.
