Quote from the Cheesemonger:

“Run out of glasses? Just pour some Champagne in the dip, and put a slit in the top to let the bubbles work their magic through the cheese.” – Harry B.

Description

Langres is a classic French washed-rind cheese that originates in the Champagne region of Langres. Unusually during the maturation stage, this cheese is purposefully not turned in order to give it a distinctive dip in the top. This is used to pour champagne in.

This cheese’s distinctive orange rind is gained through a series of washes, first in annatto (a natural colourant), and then in Marc de Bourgogne. An eau de vie made from Champagne grape skins. Washing encourages the development of a pink-orange coloured bacteria to develop in the rind. This aids in the breakdown of the cheese’s lactic, chalky centre into something more unctuous and creamy.

Langres is best paired with a celebratory glass of Champagne. Or for something less sparkling you could try our favourite red pairing, Pinot Noir and our favourite white pairing, Viognier.
