Wine Pairing Alert: Prosecco and brie cheese

Prosecco is one of my favorite sparkling wines. Hence, I am always adventurous when pairing snacks or meals with Prosecco. This time I decided to pair Prosecco with brie cheese to experiment. Brie is a french cheese and Prosecco is an italian wine. Lot’s of connossieurs will think twice this but for me was a fun experiment and I will share with you my thoughts on this pairing.

The experiment

  1. Pick your brie

According to britannica.com, Brie is a soft cow’s-milk cheese named after Brie, the French region from which it originated. I love the cremosity of brie cheese. Depending on the brand you get and how fresh it is when you get it you will have the yummy-gummy cremosity falling down on every slice. For me the same rule applies when buying wine, get the product with best quality/price availability.

2. Pick your Prosecco

We already now that there are different types of Prosecco.

The type of Prosecco that I selected for this experiment was Prosecco Superiore. Prosecco Superiore is a very floral and elegant sparkling that has medium acidity in most cases. Therefore the medium acidity on the palate work along with the cremosity of the cheese since it doesn’t have to cut over strong flavors.

Final thoughts

Even though usually brie is served with Vintage Champagne rather than with Prosecco but I will invite you to try this pairing and make a decision. For my it was a match made in heaven.
