    Hi Gary – I’ve tried a couple Crozes-Hermitage recently and was disappointed. Both of them had a dominant mint/eucaplytpus action on the nose that transitioned to the palate that I didn’t enjoy. I’ll give a few others a shot but so far have not been a big fan of the Crozes.

    QOTD: I freaking LOVE Gruyere and Gouda cheese. I haven’t tried either of these but they look like winners:

    I got a wine from this region for christmas. I cant wait to try it out.

    QOTD: I havent ventured much into cheeses. But so far Brie has been really good. But I know there is many more out there , that are probably 100 times better.

    Late to the party… I was in Hawaii. Having my own party. Anyway…

    Fav cheese is pecorino romano–there’s a particular brand, but I’m not sure what it’s called. Pretty simple, mostly clear package with green and some red. But that applies to most Italian cheeses, so that doesn’t help much.

    Bummer about the Jaboulet. Usually enjoy their stuff. QOTD – I have an unhealthy obsession with any kind of manchego.

    I'm a big fan of Crozes Hermitage – the 2007 from Jean-Luc Colombo 'Les Gravieres' is a recent favourite of mine.

  • Vasilak

    Love Cotswald, wish you guys carried it at gourmetlib.

    Gary, I love Croze-Hermitage. I tried it for the first time at au pied de cochon I had it with you guessed it pigs feet. WOW, what a wonderful match, it goes so well with game-y heavy foods. I looove it.

    As for my favourite cheese I would say its sauvagine. It is a quebec cheese made with raw cow's milk. It has that manure red burgundy smell. AMAZING!

    Gary, took awhile to respond. Watching this episode got me to try some cheese from gl.com. Got 3 have tasted 2 Beemster Premium Goat – gf's favorite. Might have taken over her top spot over Drunken Goat. Bucheron Sevre Belle I love this, the play between the fresh goat cheese and the more stinky cheese was excellent. Have already placed another order for some different cheeses.

    I will say buying cheese not made in VT and living here seems to be against everything I believe, but in saying that so far it has not disappointed.

    Congrats on the branching out and continuing to dominate.
