Opaline at the Sofitel DC is participating in the worldwide Sofitel Wine Days through October 31st with a special selection of French cheeses & wines. There are three pairings to choose from, or you can order a flight of all three. My favorite was the “chocolat” pairing which includes creamy Saint-André cheese. Cheese selections by Roland Barthélemy, and wine selections by Laurent Lala from Elite Wines.
The pairing option include:
- Perfume of the Islands: Saint Agur paired served with fresh banana and Madagascar pepper, paired with Domaine Martray, En Combiaty, Vieilles Vignes, Brouilly.
- Dream: Etorky served with pear and serrano ham, paired with Domaine Pauet Fussiacus St Veteran
- Chocolat: Saint-André served with chocolate grains, paired with with Domaine Berthet Rayne Côtes du Rhône Blanc
Take advantage of this opportunity to taste these wine and cheese pairings!
