Bordeaux has two banks, a left bank and a right bank. It is a
winery’s location on either bank that determines the proportion of
Merlot to Cabernet inside each wine. If the winery is located on the
Left Bank, the blend created will have more Cabernet Sauvignon than
Merlot. If the winery is instead located on the Right Bank of the river,
the wine will have more Merlot in the blend than Cabernet Sauvignon.
Brie Cheese is one of the world's most popular dairy products, and
many would argue the greatest French cheese on earth. Brie Cheese is
named after the town of Brie in central France. A soft-ripened cheese,
Brie is characterized by a white, bloomy rind of penicillium candidum
mold, with a soft, creamy interior. Brie Cheese has a buttery flavor,
creamy texture. Baked Brie can be made either savory for an appetizer or
sweet as a dessert. A standard savory Baked Brie is topped with chopped
garlic, herbs, and a dash of black pepper.

Pairing Wine and Cheese
Traditionalists suggest that the wine and cheese be paired according to region
or strength, thus preventing one from overpowering the other. Part of the reason
is the tannin levels. Red wines, fermented with the skins, have a higher
concentration than white and this affects the pairing characteristics. Nothing
is more a matter of individual taste than, well, individual tastes. Pairing wine
and cheese is one of the best examples. There certainly are guidelines that
reflect a large consensus about which wine goes well with which cheese.
