Delightful Delice de Bourgogne
If you crave decadence, then I have a cheese for you! Mini Delice de Bourgogne. This amazing French triple cream cow’s milk cheese hails from the Burgundy region of France. The maker, Lincet, combines the milk with a dollop of crème fraiche to increase its richness.
I purchased this special air shipped item and hurried home to enjoy. With its milky, somewhat tangy, earthy delightful smell I couldn’t wait to slice it gently in half. The bloom was soft, delicate and fluffy white with smatterings of pale yellow. The edging resembled whipped butter: rich, creamy-lip smacking good! The interior was velvety smooth-mouth coating!
The thin, slightly pungent bloom revealed straw, mushroom and lactic aromas blending harmoniously with the milder interior flavor creating the most sublime melt- in- your mouth texture. I enjoyed the 7.1oz dainty Delice drizzled with truffle honey, crusty bread and a glass of Tosca Proseco-truly a sumptuous cheese.
