La Bonne Vie

PAIRING WITH CHAMPAGNE AND SPARKLING WINES 
Pair a wonderful, ripe, triple-cream cheese with Extra Brut Champagne, and you'll never again want one without the other. The effervescence of Champagne and sparkling wines is refreshing and palate cleansing, a perfect match for the buttery, almost whipped-cream nuances of the most decadent triple creams. Almost all Champagnes are high in acidity, and the sweetness of Champagne comes mostly from added sugar instead of the ripeness of the grapes. Sugar combined with effervescence and relatively low alcohol change the way you pair cheeses with Champagne (as opposed to wine). The cleansing effect of Champagne bubbles changes everything. Creamy, full-fat cheeses are refreshed by Champagne, and the added sweetness in Champagne creates a wonderful balance for rich, creamy blues. When pairing Champagne and cheese. Rich, creamy, triple-cream La Bonne Vie is spectacular with an Extra Brut, and try the La Bonne Vie Goat Cheese with Demi-Sec or Doux. For something out of this world, try the La Bonne Vie Rouge exquisite washed rind cheese with a traditional French Champagne.
