BRANDY & CHEESE
On 14 June 2019, St-Rémy launched its partnership with Rodolphe Le Meunier – Meilleur Ouvrier de France (Best Craftsman of France) and Meilleur Fromager International (Best International Cheese Maker) in 2005 and 2007 – “Brandy & Cheese”, a unique collaboration to celebrate quality French gastronomy.
Artisanal cheese and wine are a classic pairing, so it makes perfect sense for a grape-based drink such as St-Rémy brandy, which is made using only French grapes, to enjoy the same intense relationship.
Both St-Rémy brandy and Rodolphe Le Meunier share the same values of authenticity, simplicity and generosity, along with a strong belief that both brandy St-Rémy and cheese taste better when enjoyed in the company of friends.
Pairing cheese with wine or Port is a tradition throughout the world; however, for a more unique pairing, try brandy with cheese. There are many similarities between St-Rémy and artisanal cheese! These two facets of French gastronomy have diverse terroirs, each with their own techniques and legislation that impacts the characteristics of the grapes or cheeses. The climate also plays an important role in the regional differences for both grapes and cheese.
In France, the term “terroir” includes a region’s climate, geography and soils, combined together with a human savoir-faire. The term has been adapted to represent a similar, complex “sense of place” for regional products such as cheeses and olive oil. In the case of St-Rémy and Rodolphe Le Meunier, terroir is an essential part of producing world-class products that represent the essence of France.
