About

A beautiful, voluptuous cheese, made in Burgundy. This amazing cheese is made in the traditional style of a triple-cream. It is similar to the famous Brillat Savarin. The Chateau de Bourgogne is sourced and produced especially for the large Canadian cheese importer, Les Dependances du Manoir.

Taste Notes

Chateau de Bourgogne has a cake-like shape and a lovely white bloomy rind. Its interior is ivory in colour and very smooth. The aroma of Chateau de Bourgogne is creamy and somewhat buttery, with a hint of nuttiness. The paste is creamy and rich, melting in your mouth like soft butter. The slightly bitter rind acts as an excellent balance to the creamy and decadent interior.

Pairings

The richness of Chateau Bourgogne is set off and balanced wonderfully by champagne, but it will match well with a red burgundy (local matches are always good), other pinot noirs, or a blended red, like a Bordeaux or meritage.
