Wine and cheese pairings!

I have some Camembert and goat cheese that I want to pair with a red wine. I would like something that goes well with both. Something that can cut through the goat but not kill the buttery flavor of the Camembert. Thanks

From one of my wine expert friends: "something with some acidity like a Sangiovese, also a Burgundian wine (Pinot Noir), Pinot from Germany would go well, Chianti (also the sangiovese grape), Brunello (sangiovese again) or any Nebbiolo (Barbaresco and/or Barolo) would be great. If you want something on the more cost effective side I would say a Barbera, Chianti, Sangiovese would be better bets."
