This is a soft washed rind cow’s cheese from the Loire Valley, in the Aunis province of France, situated on the north-west coast, in the department of Charente-Maritime, within the region of Poitou-Charente.
Fleur d’ Aunis bathed in a cognac fortified aperitif and brushed lightly with fleur D’ 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.
