Lhney & Johana – “The Cheese Ladies”


Apéro Box – January 2022

Featuring the Canton of Fribourg

San Antonio

Laiterie du Mouret

San Antonio

Characteristics :  A semi-hard cheese aged 12 mois

Type of milk :  Goat milk, thermized

Tasting Notes :  San Antonio has a buttery, milky taste and it is pleasantly salty.  This is not a stinky goat cheese but rather a perfect introduction to goat cheese for those who are shy about trying something new.

Serving suggestion :  A perfect artisanal cheese for apéro, especially when cut into cubes and served with a dry but fruity white wine.  A red wine will overpower the delicate notes of the goat’s milk.

Péché Mignon Nature

Fromagerie Grégoire Kern

Péché Mignon Nature

Characteristics :  A soft, bloomy white rind cheese, aged 9 days

Type of milk :  Cows’ milk pasteurized

Tasting Notes :  Péché Mignon Nature is a creamy, pleasantly pungent soft artisanal cheese that blooms in your mouth or as it warms to room temperature.

Serving suggestion :  Pair with a dry sparkling wine to bring out the earthiness and sweetness of both the cheese and the wine.

Triptyque Blanc “Barrique” 2020

Cave de la Tour

Triptyque Blanc “Barrique” 2020

Grapes :  Blend of Johanniter, Seval Blanc and Charmont

Swiss Wine Region :  AOC Vully

Vintage :  2020

Wine Style :  Medium aromatic intensity, aromas of tropical fruits: mango, pineapple, and yellow apples; notes of honey and vanilla. Medium-high acidity and medium-long persistence.

Serving suggestion :  We paired this assemblage wine with the Péché Mignon Nature and San Antonio.  The fruity notes of this wine are a perfect accompaniment to the creamy and slightly spicy profile of the Péché Mignon Nature. San Antonio with its buttery and salty notes further enhances the fruity aromas of the wine. A wonderful way to celebrate the new year!
