Also known as Brin d'Amour, this sheep's milk cheese is created on the island of Corsica, France and covered in native herbs such as rosemary, fennel seeds, juniper, and bird's eye chilli- thus earning it's title of "flower of the Maquis." It has tangy, acidic flavors, tempered by the buttery, richness of the sheep's milk. As this cheese ages, the herbed rind becomes mottled with blue-gray molds, enhancing the herbaceous flavors absorbed in the pate of the cheese. Rosé and Riesling make wonderful companions for Fleur du Maquis.
**NATURAL MOLD DISCLAIMER: Cheese is a natural food product and MAY have mold growth on the rind. This is perfectly normal and can occur on the rind during the aging process. Mold is not harmful and will not affect the flavor of the cheese.
