Saveur du Maquis

Also known as ‘Brin d’Amour’ (breath of love) or ‘Fleur du Maquis’, this lovely sheep milk cheese is traditionally covered with Corsican herbs, chilies, and juniper berries. The aging is approximately three months with the whole round weighing only about 750g. The aroma speaks of the Coriscan landscape (the maquis) and the appearance resonates with the island vegetation. The texture of the paste is soft and delicate with honeyed nuances and a slightly tangy note on the finish. Surprisingly the herbs and spices do not overwhelm the cheese, but merely hint of the land of origin.

How To Enjoy:

This is a perfect cheese to offer as a light appetizer on a light bodied neutral cracker with a local Corsican red such as Cap Corse. Very lovely when in the company of a green mixed leaf salad or on the charcuterie board.
