MILK Raw Cow's
Fermented Fruit - Boozy - Moussey
Langres is moussey with a sticky, meaty rind and a milky centre.
Langres is a small washed rind cheese hailing near two great wine producing regions - Champagne and Burgundy.
The cheese's distinctive orange rind is gained through a series of washes, first in annatto (a natural colourant used to develop the cheese's ruddy hue) and then in Marc de Bourgogne, an eau de vie made from Champagne grape skins.
This is traditionally enjoyed with Champagne, have it with Dunleavey Brut Sparkling White Wine or a Gueze beer like Mariage Parfait
