Having almost disappeared in the 20th century, Langres has been revived using the traditional recipe. This aromatic cheese is made just ouside the market town of Langres in the Champagne-Ardenne region of France, and was granted AOC designation in 1919.
It is brushed with the local eau-de-vie (grape brandy) this causes the characteristic orange bacteria to develop on the rind. This breaks down the lactic, chalky core to give a rich, sumptuous cream-line and deep flavour. Aged for 8 weeks it is truly creamy and luxurious, with a hint of alcohol! The characteristic dimple in the top is caused by the fact that it is only turned once during production, giving it a tendency to sag in the middle.
