Section: Cheese Family: Washed Rind Ref: CHE00024
Trou du Cru is a very strong, pungent French cheese. It is a pasteurized cow's milk "Époisses" cheese from the Bourgogne region. The soft cheese is ivory-yellow in color, with an orange, edible rind. For four weeks during its maturation, each small cheese is washed individually with Marc de Bourgogne, a strong local alcohol, which imparts a straw-like flavor to the cheese. A mighty small cheese that will give your taste buds a real taste of the French terroir.
