New Pairing

It's finally starting to feel like summer here in Chicago. The Grant Park Music Festival is going strong along with Ravinia and music in the park. This week we've got another great pairing for you. Saint Felicien for the cheese, and a 2008 Domaine du Salvard for the wine.

Saint Felicien is a natural-ripened cow milk cheese from Lyons, France. Creamy, runny and spreadable she has a well balance flavor profile combining just the right acidity with a soft earthiness. A staff favorite, and sure to be one of yours as well. We are also featuring Saint Marcellin, a smaller cousin of Saint Felicien.

The Domaine du Salvard is a Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay blend from Cheverny, France. If you're looking for a big butterball Chardonnay, this is not the wine for you. On the other hand, if you enjoy Sancerre or Vouvray this wine is right up your alley. Mineral, chalk, and lime peel are the primary flavors in this wine. It is bone dry and mouth-watering. Delicious!
