|Tasting Notes||Say it with me, lawn-GRUH. This beautiful little cheese is a unique washed rind made according to a special tradition in the Champagne region. The little wheels of dense, cake-y soft cheese are washed with brine and natural colourant during a 6 week ageing process to develop the attractive golden hue. The expert affineurs intentionally neglect to turn the wheels, as is usually done often, to encourage the concave dip in the top. The tradition is to score an X in the top and fill the well with a little Champagne, infusing the cheese with the acidic bubbles to create an effervescent explosion of cream and decadence. Enjoy with the rest of the bottle! We love this for NYE celebrations.|
