Camembert is described as having a milky sweet taste when it is young but as it matures it gains a rich, buttery flavour.
A French classic, Camembert dates back to the 18th century, when it was first produced in Normandy. Made with cow’s milk, the cheese has a sweet taste when it is young, maturing into a rich, buttery cheese over time. Enjoy its soft texture and subtle flavours of mushroom, egg, nuts, milk and even fruit! Try it with Chenin Blanc or Beaujolais wine. It’s also spot-on with a glass of your favourite cider.
Camembert is paired best with a light red wine such as Chenin Blanc, St.Emilion, and Beaujolais or with a glass of traditional Normandy Cider.
