What You Need To Know About Blue Cheese And Wine

Blue cheese (or bleu cheese) is a cow's, sheep's, or goat's milk cheese to which Penicillium culture was added producing a bluish mold. Blue cheeses tend to taste sharp and a bit salty with a strong smell. They are eaten by themselves or can be crumbled or melted over foods. Famous, relatively expensive blue cheeses include French Roquefort, Italian Gorgonzola, and English Stilton.

In addition to the wines mentioned in our food pairing table you might consider a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, a Riesling, or a Sauternes. Don't waste an expensive wine on a middling Blue Cheese.
