Blue cheese generally makes most red wines taste richer and livelier.
Answer: False.While I love blue cheese, I usually don’t have it with wine. Extremely salty and pungent, blue cheese’s aggressive, palate-coating flavors strip the flavor of virtually all dry red wines, making them taste insipid and washed out. Just about the only wine that can counterbalance a blue cheese’s forceful character is a powerhouse like Port. Because it is both sweet and fortified, Port has the intensity and body to stand up to blue cheese. The combination, in fact, has been considered a European classic for centuries.
