The close-textured Chabichou becoming sweeter and crumblier with age; Perail fresh, rich melting pate, velvety on the palate, with pleasant notes of sweet earthiness; Laguiole's smooth texture and clean fruity taste, tangy but not aggressive; Vieux Boulogne, pronounced and earthy flavours, with wild mushroom, savoury undertones; deliciously creamy Bleu de Bonneval soft and tender, with a steely kick & lovely depth.

PAIRING WINES

RIESLING VIEILLES VIGNES
18.50

Domaine L Kirmann, Epfig, Alsace

100% Riesling. The domaine in is Epfig, some fifty kilometers south of Strasbourg. The estate has been in the family now for three generations and is now run by Olivier, who took over in 1996. The wine is from grapes selected from the oldest vines on the slope side of the vineyard. Perfect Riesling character from the simple philosophy of their winemaking: the respect for the land and the vine, which gives a purity of taste. Full-bodied, with excellent acidity and a long zesty fruit and mineral finish. A perfect cheese wine.

DON QUIXOTE
19.65

Chateau Le Roc, Cotes de Frontonnais

60% Negrette, 40% Syrah. This cuvée is from a selection of plots planted on stoney alluvial soil termed 'boulbenes' in the region. It is low clay with white sandy loam and naturally acidity which all goes into the big flavour profile of the wine, as well as the importance of terracing the vines to allow free drainage. The grapes are not crushed, but placed in tanks and gravity slowly presses the juice. A different working approach called 'punching' promotes flavour but softer tannins. The immediate aroma is violet and liquorice and once in the mouth there is a burst of rich fruity flavours with a white pepper hit. Fine and silky, with a wonderful length.

The iconic Opinel knife design has been the same since the company started in 1890. The natural wood is from local forests in Jura and it is advised not to place the knives in a dishwasher, just simply dip the blade in hot water and wipe clean.

For the handles, simply wipe with a damp cloth and then with a dry cloth. Your knives with last for years if you take care of them!

The new Cheese Knife and Fork is a unique design and a perfect set of tools to cut cheese. Whether cutting hard or soft cheese the blade will glide through and give a perfect slice every time. The fork is there to use as a rest for the knife, but is also useful to pick up the cut pieces too.
