As January begins to come to an end the one thing most people have on their mind is the coming spring thaw. Of course for many this is still a ways away and there are many more cold days to happen between now and then. A good way to spend these days is to enjoy a quality wine with a Mariposa Cheese Board with friends to enjoy their company along with the great flavors.
Many fine French cheeses are often enhanced with a sweet tone that can be enhanced when it is served with just the right wine pairing. To best bring out that flavor a slightly sweet wine with natural spices can not only bring out the best in the cheese but also augment the taste of the wine as well.
Wines to pair with these slightly sweet French cheeses include mulled wine, medium sherry, and classic port. Mulled wines are full of amazing spices and are served warm making it perfect for winter days to serve with cheese. While the sherry and port both have a sweet flavor that when paired with French cheese can be used as a simple sweet snack or a light and delicious dessert.
