TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Roule cheese is a French cheese with a soft and creamy texture, traditionally flavoured with herbs and garlic. On the palate, it is creamy smooth and has a spreadable texture. Flavor-wise, it presents a spicy, sweet and tangy taste.
Rians Le Roulé Garlic & Herbs has a well-balanced flavour of garlic and herbs with a creamy texture. Extraordinarily versatile, you can spread it on fresh bread, slather on a jacket potato or include in a sandwich. Red Sancerre or Champagne is recommended with a Le Roulé log.

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. This fresh cheese should be stored in a lidded plastic or glass container in the refrigerator. Kindly pay attention to the best before date label when you receive your cheese. Consume prior to date indicated.
