A glass of champagne next to a slice of cheese
Langres Is The Creamy French Cheese Made For Champagne
Landres cheese is formed with a concave top, in the shape of a slight dip, to accommodate its home-region soul mate, French champagne.
Instead of cutting cheese chunks, carve a small X into the washed rind of the divot-shaped top and pour champagne over it. It will bubble and seep into the cheese beneath the rind.
The champagne bubbles make the Langres even creamier, enhance the brioche-leaning taste, and balance the cheese's tinge of saltiness.
Simply sipping a glass of champagne while nibbling the cheese is another way to enjoy the pairing, but infusing the two together really marries the flavors.
