A classic French washed rind cheese from Normandy with a soft texture. Also known as "The Colonel" because the cheese is bound with straps of rush or paper, reminiscent of the stripes of a military officer of that rank. A pungent cheese with meaty & spicy flavors.
This AOP cheese is one of Normandy's oldest cheeses dating back to at least the 13th century. It has a strong flavor, heavy mouth feel and spicy finish. Normally matured for six to eight weeks, it can be aged for longer to achieve stronger flavors. Its rind must be smooth and shiny without holes. Depending on its age, its color varies between auburn and dark brown.
Available in half pound increments. Product of France.
