Champagne-Ardenne / Lorraine / Burgundy, France
*Unpasteurized milk used in countries where it is allowed*
Similar to Epoisses, but not as strong, Langres is a semi-soft, washed rind cheese that starts out firm and supple, but becomes creamy as it ripens. It has a complex array of flavors ranging from creamy and savory to tangy and zesty. The cheese has a designed concave top, where you are meant to pour a little Champagne, and let it soak into the cheese. Delish!
Sold as 1 wheel- approximately 6 oz.
