Origin: Burgundy, France
Family: Washed rind
Aged: 6 weeks
Affidelice is very well known for its pungent aroma and sticky terracotta-coloured rind. Its paste has a smooth, velvety texture with a meaty flavour that melts in the mouth. During maturation, Affidelice is washed in chablis (a local Chardonnay), mixed with salty water, several times per week.
The mild, savoury flavour perfectly sets off the strong, aromatic smell of the cheese, with a beautiful sweet finish. It goes well with sweet and acidic fruits. It augments the flavour of dry white wines like Chardonnay and of course Chablis.
