Langres

Langres
is a classic AOC cheese from, as the name indicates, the high plains of Langres, in Champagne, France. It is aged for five weeks in humid caves where it is regularly washed in brine, but turned only once to encourage the formation of its distinctive concaved top. Beneath the soft, rippled, red-orange rind (colored with natural annato seed) is a straw-yellow interior; the outer paste is soft and smooth, and the core remains flaky until it’s at its peak maturity. It tastes similar to Epoisses, but is salty and spicy, with a strong aroma. And the top of the cheese is concave for a reason- tradition dictates cutting a small slit and pouring a little champagne over it so when you cut it, it infuses the slightly salty paste with delightful effervescence.
