Delice d'Argental is a triple cream French cheese from the Burgundy region. It is made by hand from cow's milk. The addition of crème fraiche to the curds during manufacture provides for extra richness - developing an exceptionally creamy texture.[1] This cheese has a soft bloomy rind which is yellow-white in colour. It is similar to Brie both in appearance and texture.
