Classic wine pairing

Firmer cheeses call for a red wine – whose tannic structure is the perfect foil for the protein and also for the chocolate in this recipe. Something fruity like a Bordeaux Rouge or Bordeaux Superieur make for perfect partners.

Original wine pairing

A dry white from Pessac Léognan. The richer flavors and texture of these wines layered with toasty oak notes provide a delicious yet refreshing lively contrast to the cheese and chocolate duo.


- 1 Saint André or equivalent (soft cow's milk cheese in a crust)
- 20 chocolate chips
- 6 long rectangular crackers


Gather chocolate chips in a bowl

Place the cheese slices on the crackers, then top with the chocolate chips
