Fougerus is a mold-ripened cow’s milk cheese from Brie family produced by Rouzaire. To make it, milk is sourced from 20 local farms situated in the Seine-et-Marne region south of Paris. For the first time, this soft cheese was made in the beginning of 20th century and even famous nowadays. It is a handmade cheese with a soft, creamy texture and a white bloomy rind. The cheese is dried for a few days before it’s transferred to maturating rooms where it’s left for a period of 4 weeks to ripen fully.

A good choice for vegetarians with sweet - salty flavour, it aromatizes the kitchen with woody and earthy smell of fern. With a fat content of 45%, Fougerus is served with Spicy White and Bourgogne Bordeaux Cotes du Rhone.
