The weather forecast was for rain… but how could it! Matt Kelley of Thoroughbred Title Services was hosting his third Annual Wine & Cheese Pairing at a beautiful home owned by our Mary Gail Barry from the Larchmont Manor. The guests? The Houlihan Lawrence Larchmont office, and the evening was delightful.
The fall (real estate) season has started, and what better way to celebrate than to imbibe some wine and cheese with friends while we are discussing our new listings and sales. The Houlihan Lawrence Larchmont office is doing so well, and the evening celebrated that fact also.
What was served? This where I must credit the Dobbs & Bishop Fine Cheese Shop in Bronxville, New York, (914) 361-1770, and Rochambeau Wines in Dobbs Ferry (914) 693-0034 for the following descriptions are theirs alone….:
A delectable evening in Larchmont Manor where the perfect waterfront setting, with cheeses that paired perfectly with the wines served, all made for a wonderful evening.
If you are interested: (if you had tasted the wine and cheese – you would be drooling!)..
Bucheron – a Goat’s cheese – tangy and creamy Hudson Valley Camembert – 95% Sheep’s Milk, 5% Cow’s Milk – a soft creamy cheese – comes from Old Chatham, N.Y.
served with a 2011 Parusso Langhe Bianco ($16.99)
2012 Commanderie de Bargemone Rose ( $14.99) served with
Ossau Iraty – aged raw sheep’s milk cheese from the French Pyranees, bold
Robiola – soft Italian cheese – a mixture of Sheep’s and cow’s milk – from Piedmont
Tarentaise – aged raw cow’s milk from Vermont
Kinsman Ridge – raw milk tome from New Hampshire, aged in the cellars at Jasper Hill – So much more than a brie/camembert. These cheeses were served with a 2009 Chateau De Lancyre Pic St. Loup.. – it was superb. Mellow, and rich and just $18.99 a bottle.
The Fourth wine, a 2010 Petalos, Bierzo ($17.99) was from Galicia, Spain and was a perfect accompaniment for the following cheeses:
A Great Hill Blue -raw cow’s milk cheese from Marion, Ma. young & tangy.. not too strong and Ewe’s Blue – another cheese from Old Chatham, N.Y. in the Roquefort style… but creamier and softer, and with a different finish than the cow’s milk blue .
Mary Gail had made a wonderful fig butter the night before from figs, butter and honey and this was served with the Ewe’s blue.. perfect!
What can I say!
Larchmont is great!
