Cut the cheese and it reveals a firm, creamy “bright white” interior but not before unwinding a thin buttery layer.The flavours are sweet with a bit of salty and tangy edge at the end. As the cheese ages, it becomes savory, piquant and nutty. Balance the flavours of the cheese with light white wine, champagne, and pilsner beer.
