Napoleon’s favourite cheese by far!
The Langres of the Crèmerie Royale is a cheese full of character from the Champagne region, reputed to have been Napoleon’s favourite. It appeared on French farmhouse tables at the beginning of the XVIIIth century. Instantly recognisable from its sharp smell, its orange colour and the small hollowed top which is formed during ripening. Made from full-cream cow milk and matured for 14 days, the fine rind is rinsed with a solution of brine and Marc de Bourgogne liqueur. The smooth, velvety paste hides a firmer crumbly centre, creating an extremely palate-pleasing textural contrast. The Langres au Marc de Bourgogne combines light acidic notes, complex flavours and a controlled strength. A delicious symbol of French culinary heritage.
