3 wine/cheese pairings from Quebec

Looking for good wine and cheese pairings? Here are three winning ideas for rounding out a meal that are also made in Quebec!

Coteau Rougemont

Have you ever had the excellent Le Tuyau de Poêle from the Ruban Bleu dairy in Mercier? It’s a goat cheese with ash in the middle and a soft rind. It works particularly well with a fresh white wine, like this one from Coteau Rougemont, made from a blend of Frontenac Blanc and Frontenac Gris grapes.

Domaine de Lavoie

Lovers of hard rind, mature cheeses are fans of Louis d’Or, produced by Fromagerie du Presbytère in Sainte-Élizabeth-de-Warwick. And if you see any versions that have been aged longer than usual, you should definitely snatch them up! This type of cheese pairs well with a supple red featuring woody notes, like this one from Domaine de Lavoie, which will bring out accents of sweet spices.
