Brie + Food pairing...

914NYC | Oct 19, 2008 10:13 AM

....A buttery Chardonnay w/ buttery cheese makes sense,
but why does St. Andre/Brie go with Champagne/Sparking ?
(Book said this is ideal pairing) B/c of the big contrast?

Also, why Brie + Bordeaux/Cabernet ?
Is it b/c you need a full bodied wine to stand up to the full bodied fat/cheese?

THANKS!
