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 cheese is rich and creamy due to the cheese-making process where cream is added to the milk during the cheese process (see "Triple cream").
