It goes without saying that most wine lovers also love cheese. I rarely enjoy a glass without a tasty, cheesy accompaniment. What’s really cool is that according to a new scientific study by the Centre for Taste and Feeding Behavior in Dijon, France, cheese really does make wine taste better. The study took four types of wine, both reds and whites, (Pacherenc, Sancerre, Bourgogne, and Madiran) and paired them with four cheeses (Epoisses, Comté, Roquefort and Crottin de Chavignol).
Interested in the full results? Here’s the actual scientific study that was published in the Journal of Food Science. For those less nerdy types, here’s a quick synopsis of the study from The Huffington Post.
