Cremeux De Bourgogne
Ever want to turn breakfast in bed into an all day affair? A slab of this pillowy triple creme is a de-motivating force to be reckoned with. Just add fresh fruit, brioche toast, and mimosas for a hedonistic way to start the day. Like all triple cremes to reach the U.S., this one is pasteurized cow milk though it hails from Burgundy rather than the typical northwestern area of Normandy. The sweet, milky and mild interior is fluffy in its youth, but quickly unravels into silky creme fraiche texture under the work of the bloomy, white mold rind. By that point it's got just a hint of white mushroom aroma and adopts a more buttery rather than milky character. Lighter whites or Rosé with fruit play off its sweetness.
