Happy National Wine and Cheese Day!

Today we celebrate one of the most classic pairings: wine and cheese. From Goat to Blue to Brie, there is a shockingly large amount of cheese to pair with a wide variety of wines. For our lactose intolerant and vegan users, have you found any cheese substitutes that would make a suitable wine and "cheese" pairing? To celebrate, we've gathered notes from the Delectable community that include wine and cheese. Grab the bottle opener and a charcuterie board and celebrate. Cheers!

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Leather, vanilla, cheese rinds, and petrichor notes. Opaque colour with a little bit of sediment on the appearance. Tannins has softened to a nice velvety texture on the palate. Tasted a half bottle so it probably aged a bit faster than a standard. — 4 years ago

Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2017

One of my top Finger Lakes Riesling’s!

Nice balance of sweetness and tartness. Paired well with shrimp cocktail and cheese.

Could use a little more “umph”, but was very elegant nonetheless.

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2007

Dark ruby in color with a wide brick rim.

Strong nose of black plums, cherries, cloves, light vegetables, oak, light tar, dark chocolates, coffee, earth, leather, light vanilla, light vegetables, wood and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, vegetables, wood, light cloves and tar.

Medium on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Italian Brunello is drinking very nicely now.

Well balanced with a great mouthfeel and nice complexity. This 12 year old is peaking now.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show the complexity. Do take your time with it, as it is well worth it.

A very nice wine to sip on, and share with friends and talk about. Good with food as well. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses, and light appetizers.

Robert Parker 91 points. Wine Enthusiasts 92 points.

100% Sangiovese grapes, were aged for 24 months in Oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.
