Brie Cheese is wonderfully full-flavored and deserves a pairing that is equally indulgent. Young Brie Cheese is best paired with a white wine such as a Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. The Sauvignon Blanc can bring a bright acidity and even notes of tropical fruits, whereas the Chardonnay oftentimes are more delicate and buttery, which would complement the Young Brie perfectly. Aged Brie is best paired with red wines, such as an Albariño or Zinfandel. The Albariño grape comes from Northwestern Spain and is very aromatic with inherent tartness while the Zinfandel has blackberry aromas and flavors with a full body. Both of these bring out the richness of the Aged Brie.
