Delice de Bourgogne: A Creamy Start
June 15, 2010
Delice de Bourgogne is a triple cream cheese from France made of cow’s milk. The sample we tried had an ivory gooey interior with a mottled white rind. During our tasting we talked most about its creamy texture, rather than its flavor or scent.
Our portion of Delice de Bourgogne was ripe, yet it gave off very little odor. Ben suggested that its scent was a bit tangy, like a ripe orange. Jacob detected no scent.
The cheese had an initial tangy taste and a sweeter aftertaste. The flavor was not strong at all and didn’t create a passionate response.
The texture, however, created quite a buzz. The cheese spread easily on bread, much like cake icing. Both Ben and Jacob described the cheese as almost liquid and
pliable. Its consistency resembles whipped cream. It had really good mouth feel.
We all liked it and would buy it again, however, because of its texture I wouldn’t recommend taking this on a picnic.
