Fougerus - small - cow's milk sharp soft cheese - 8.8 oz/250 gr, France.

From the family of Brie cheeses, this one is most closely related to a Coulommiers, although slightly larger and aged with a fern leaf. Its origins are artisan based having been made directly on farms for single-family consumption. The fern was used both for decoration and to impart a woodsy, earthy scent to the cheese. The cheese is now produced on a much larger scale. Thicker than a Brie de Nangis, it tends to ripen slowly, often with a section of the interior left firm. The flavor is sweet and milky, typical of Brie but with more depth. Forest scents come through delightfully.
Taste: The scent of the fern blends with the fragrance of the mold; the pate is sweet and has a salty taste.

Appropriate wines: Bourgogne, Bordeaux, Cotes du Rhone.

Fat in Cheese: 45%
