Suggested wine by the glass: classic, traditional-style Cahors by Clos Siguier, a Natural wine from the awesome portfolio of New York importer Jenny and François.

“The Cahors [the original Malbec from France] and Little Boy Blue are complementary to one another,” says general manager Brian Elder, “but the flavors are linear and direct. The pungent blue cheese is almost sensory overload in itself until the terroir of the wine perfectly frames all the nuance of flavor within. These flavors have considerable staying power on the palate and in the nose. One can appreciate the interchange in between bites and sips.”
