French Campagnier Cheese

Campagnier’s bright orange rind suggests that it’s going to be pungent and stinky, but aromas are surprisingly subdued, earthy and soupy. A silky paste oozes from the rind, almost in a thick, pudding-like consistency. Flavor is buttery and meaty; think of a steak with compound butter and lots of salt. Mushroomy notes linger on the palate. Overall it’s a friendly and accessible cheese, still offering washed rind die-hards that addictively meaty depth of flavor. amous, this new version is a washed-rind cheese.
