And then it caught my eye, down in front of the case, all plump and ready to burst out of the wrapping.
“That one”, I said, and had a taste. My cheese faith has been reborn!
Brebirouss d’Argental is a gooey, oozy sheepy French beauty with an orange rind that makes it look like it might be stinky, but it’s not. It has a lush milky tang with a faint waft of mushroom and a subtle sweetness.
This one would pair nicely with something bright & acidic, like crisp green apple slices or a chilled Sauvignon Blanc.
But I think it’s best just scooped onto an index finger and plopped in the mouth (when no one is looking, of course).
