Langres AOC

This washed rind cheese originates from the plateau of Langres in Champagne, France.  It was granted AOC status in 1991, and stands as a traditional French cheese. It has a wrinkled orange rind with the color being achieved from the annatto that is used in the wash. As such, in quite resembles the classic Epoisses de Bourgogne.

How To Enjoy:

Langres has a strong aroma with a pronounced bouquet. It is a cheese which has distinct stages of maturity and this is reflected in the flavour as well as the texture of the paste. When young, Langres is slightly grainy and taste is spicey and complex with a touch of salt. As it ages, the paste becomes quite creamy, sticky, and very much a spoonable consistency. Pair with a full bodied red wine of the Bourgogne region and serve with fresh figs on the cheeseboard.
