Fleur d'Aunis

This is a soft washed rind cow’s cheese from the Loire Valley, in the Aunis province of France.
Fleur d’Aunis is bathed in a cognac fortified aperitif and brushed lightly with fleur de sel water. The salt re-crystallizes on the rind allowing you to bite into a nice soft cheese then having some crackly bits that change up the texture. The flavour is meaty, buttery and briny, a bit tangy, with nutty, fruity and smokey notes and a pleasant finish.

Great pairing with a Pinot Noir and fresh fruit.
