A pleasant aroma of barnyard in the nose. The first bite has hints of lemon that wake up the palate. This washed curd style of cheese brings notes of sweet and butter to the forefront. When young the paste is smooth and creamy with a jowl tickling funk in the finish. Later in life, the proteins break down and the texture becomes pleasantly crumbly and the flavor tangy and sharp.
Aged 2-4 months
Suggested to pair with: Buckwheat brioche, Ploughman with ghee fried chanterelles and confit of cashew ramp bulb pesto.
