CHARACTERISTICS

Langres AOC is a mild washed rind cheese from the high plateau of Langres in Champagne - Ardenne, ripened under a wrinkled orange rind. The cheese gets its terracotta-coloured rind from the addition of annatto to the brine solution in which it is washed. The bloomy orange rind reveals a rich creamy mousse-like texture and a delicate savoury flavour with a hint of creme fraiche.

A little history about Langres

Langres AOC can be traced back to at least the 18th Century. The distinctive sunken centre – called a Fontaine – is sometimes filled with Champagne or Marc de Champagne before it is served, making it a distinctive celebration cheese.

Yum!

This cheese is one of my favourites, it has a creamy velvety texture and taste but also has that kick to it. Whenever having a cheese board this is a must have and it is always well loved by guests!

It's one of our favourites too, particularly with a glass of Andrè Clouet 'Grande Réserve' Champagne because sometimes you have to celebrate life.
