Soft and Intense
Rouzaire Camembert is a soft ripened cheese hailing from the lle-de-France region.
Tasting Notes from The Curator
Made by the French cheese expert Robert Rouzaire, this camembert has a slightly more intense flavor as compared to the favorite of many, Brie. On the palate, you get a wonderful creamy complexity whilst paired with mushroom-like and yeasty flavor. It’s creamy texture is what makes it shine. When perfectly ripe, this Camembert is smooth like butter and melts in your mouth.
This mini camembert comes in small wooden container, perfect for a single serving. Pair with your preferred crusty bread. Pair with a fruity sauvignon blanc. Mature camembert will also work well with a red Burgundy wine.
Fromagerie Rouzaire has been an independent family owned company for three generations. Their range of artisan white mould cheeses are unique because of the limited geographical area in which the milk is sourced (Seine et Marne) and the specific know-how of their cheese-makers in traditional cheese production and affinage. While most of their products are produced using raw milk, their range of pasteurised cheeses is made mostly for the global market outside of France.
Cheeses (except brined ones in jars) should be stored in the crisper or the butter drawer of a refrigerator, not on the shelves themselves. This is to help regulate their temperature and humidity levels—and prevents the formation of mold. Once opened, they should not be kept in their original packaging. Soft cheeses with delicate rinds need to breathe, so they are best placed in glass containers lined with paper towels to absorb extra moisture. Leave the lid open a tiny bit for air to circulate and don’t forget to write up a label with the date you first opened the package. Kindly pay attention to the best before date label when you receive your cheese. Consume prior to date indicated.
