Oui Oui Oui! Camembert Fermier

   Finally, I have located a Camembert similar to the AOC (Appellation d’origine controlee) version that makes me think Oui Oui Oui all the way home!

Camembert Fermier produced by the cheese makers, Ferme de Jouvence is a genuine farmhouse cheese.  Upon first tasting this cow’s milk cheese I recognized that it was young and had not achieved its full potential.  The bloom was white with cross hatching.  The interior ivory paste was creamier on the outside but had a chalky(crumbly) heart. It was springy to the touch, definitely firm for a soft cheese.  The scent was mildly milky. The flavor was earthy, reminiscent of a baked potato with a bit of butter and dollop of sour cream.  I enjoyed its essence but also knew that if I had waited for it to age it would have been more compelling.

Three weeks later I had a do over.   What a difference in flavor and texture. Wow!  The rind was now mottled with red.  The cheese ripened from the outside inward.   The straw-colored paste was buttery and creamy.  My taste buds sparkled with the earthy, mushroom and truffle overtones …Oh how I savored every bite!   I  wanted to hop on a plane to Normandy, grab a white Rhône(perhaps Viogner, Marsanne or Rousanne), some fresh fruit, a baguette, and my Camembert Fermier.  Instead I will await its arrival in select Bottle King stores this week.  A Bon Goût!
