Langres AOC 180g – Germain


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 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.
