Fleur Du Maquis

Corsica, France Pasteurised Sheep's Milk

Fleur du Maquis is a classic ewe’s milk cheese from the French mountain island of Corsica. It is made to a traditional recipe that has survived since the first millennium.  Using  traditional baskets this whole milk cheese is drained for three days then salted and covered with a coating of aromatic wild herbs, such as rosemary, thyme and fresh sweet chillies, all picked from the local maquis (shrubland). 

Classic, handmade, with a melt-in-the-mouth texture and a sweet nutty taste which becomes even more aromatic when allowed to mature, spurring velvety blooms over the herbs and a melting texture under the rind.  

Wonderful served with savoury accompaniments such as olives, roasted peppers and tomatoes.

$12 / 100g
