A Perfection of Wine & Cheese Pairing: Beaujolais Village & Fromager D’Affinois

This is a truly memorable wine-cheese pairing!

Gilles Gelin Beaujolais Village & Fromager D’Affinois Original and with Garlic & Herbs

We wanted a wine and cheese pairing that would surpass your everyday wine and cheese pairing, and we hit on it with beautiful bottles of Beaujolais-Villages paired with Fromager D’Affinois.

Our pals over at Marczyk Fine Foods suggested we try both the herbed and original versions of this luscious cow’s milk cheese from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes…and oh how we swooned! The undeniable decadence of texture and the richness of flavor beg for an earthy, clean-finishing red; we looked to Beaujolais, which over-delivered. Gilles Gelin produces an exceptional Beaujolais-Villages, and this one from 2020 is drinking particularly well at the moment.

This dynamic duo was born to be on all of your holiday charcuterie boards. Pick some up and be the coolest kid at the party.
