Petit Gres Champenois 150G
(Imported Cheeses: France)
Considered the "white" version of Gres des Vosges, this one is completely identical -- made of fresh cows' milk in the Champagne region of France, decorated with a fern sprig on top, in the familiar oval shape -- except it has a thin, yet fluffy bloomy rind and is enriched with extra creme-fraiche, making it a double-creme. It has a creamy mouthfeel and a pleasant lactic tang to balance the gentle salinity and faint grassy, earthy notes. We recommend storing it in its little box.
