Brebirousse d'Argental

This luscious washed rind cheese is produced by Fromagerie Guilloteau. The milk is collected from ewes of the Argental region of France. Aged for thirty days this square cheese exhibits a thin bright orange patchy rind. "Brebis" is French for sheep and "Rousse" refers to the colour of the cheese.

When young the flavour is rich and sweet, but as the cheese matures the stronger meaty, earthy flavours develop while the rind becomes a darker rusty orange colour. The texture is soft and velvety and sure to ooze deliciously on your cheese plate.

Pair with a crisp Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer.
