Saint Albray

Saint Albray cheese is a flower-shaped wash rind cheese that comes from the Aquitaine region of France. Invented in 1976, the cheese is alike to Camembert cheese and shares the same characteristics but is not as strong. aromatic flavour. Made with pasteurized cow's milk.
The cheese is typically aged for several weeks; during ageing, the rind is washed with a brine solution, which helps promote the growth of specific bacteria on the surface, contributing to the cheese's unique aroma and colour. It has a pale yellow interior and a distinctive orange rind. Saint Albray is often enjoyed with crusty bread or crackers and pairs well with both red and white wines.
