Délice de Bourgogne is a French cow's milk cheese from the Burgundy region of France. It was first created in 1975 by Jean Lincet at Fromagerie Lincet. It is a soft-ripened triple-cream cheese. The creamy texture results from the extra cream that is added during the cheese-making process.

Description:

  • White & bloomy rind
  • Homogeneous paste – from ivory to pale yellow color
  • Aromas of mushrooms near the rind
  • Fine and delicate texture - mild and slightly acidic
