Grand Camembert Wheel
Le Conquerant Camembert is a close cousin of Camembert de Normandie and the closest you will find to a raw milk camembert in the US. Its strong aromatic hints of wet straw, brassica and apples are a reminder of why this authentic cheese has become a proud symbol of French cheese-making skills. Handmade for Will Studd in the Pays de Auge region of Normandy, its secret lies in the use of specially selected cultures, moulds and yeasts and, of course, rich Normandy milk. The traditional wooden poplar box and wax-paper wrap create a microclimate that encourages the chalky heart of a young cheese to slowly break down over three to four weeks, eventually becoming deliciously soft and fudgy by the use-by date. Pairs well with Dry Cider, Pinot Noir or Merlot.
