Langres AOP - Petit Langres 180g

Langres is a stunning looking cheese! washed in brine and annatto, it has a beautiful aroma from the Marc de Champagne added to the brine.

Langres is made in the Champagne region of France and it's most strinking feature is the depression at the top of the cheese called "la fontaine" or "la cuvette". Local customs would have you pouring some Champagne or even some Marc de Champagne (a distillation of the local must). the pate is creamy and delicate and the usual contrast between the washed rind and the sweet pate is, in this instance a real pleasure to the taste buds. the petit Langres 180g are matured in cellars for up to month, whilst is larger brother 1kg approx takes twice as long.
