first_imgWine and cheese are linked, but I always thought it’s because people wanted an excuse to gorge on cheese and call it “classy.”  Apparently there’s more to it than that.A new study out of France found that cheese actually makes wine TASTE BETTER.They say it’s because the tannins in red wine dry your mouth out, but the fat in the cheese keeps your mouth “lubricated” . . . yes, that is the word they used.  And that makes the wine taste better as you drink it.last_img
