Delice de Bourgogne is a French classic triple crème cheese made by Fromagerie Lincet on the lines of other classics such as Brillat Savarin or Explorateur. It originated in the Burgundy region of France where the company factory is located.
The cheese is made by blending full fat cow's milk with crème fraîche to create an incredibly delicious soft cheese with a rich flavour and a smooth, melt-in-the-mouth texture. Unlike many simple triple crème cheeses, Delice de Bourgogne has a white, bloomy and pungent rind because of the Penicilium Candidum mold. The mushroomy aroma of thin rind adds a playful contrast to the rich, creamy, buttery and tangy notes of the interior. This high fat cheese pairs very well with Champagne or Ciders and Wheat Beers.
