Le Duc Vacherin

Tasting Notes.

This soft surface-ripened, washed-rind cheese is specially made for Will in the mountains of the Franche Comte region of France.  Based on the famous seasonal spruce bound cheeses of the region but available all year and made from pasteurised milk, it is bound with a thin ring of traditional bark skillfully cut from the local spruce trees during the summer months. Chalky and mild when young, it is best enjoyed close to the use-by date when the smooth pinkish rind starts to ripple and bulge, and the inside softens to a rich creamy melt-in-the-mouth texture with just a hint of the forest.
