A wee stinker from Burgundy, France. Produced by Delin, a small family run company who concentrate on making several amazing cheeses. Made of cow’s milk, this one for me stands out. Washing the orange and sticky rind evolves the flavour.
The flavour is fruity and a bit yeasty, but it never seems to get too strong. The paste is nice and doughy, the rind is bright orange colour and sticky.
|TASTE||Rich and fruity with a slight salty tang on the finish|
|SMELL||Pungent with a bit of a yeasty and musty odour|
|RIND||Soft wet and sticky and remains stuck to your fingers, coppery orange in colour|
|INTERIOR||Soft and doughy with a few small holes in the middle, chalky if younger|
|FABULOUS||Pungent with a sticky rind and the flavour doesn’t linger for too long|
|FUNKY||Slimy rind and the flavour is intense, almost sour and bitter at the same time|
