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.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Rose

    We love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
    Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.

  • Wheat Beers

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit

    Pair with: Bright, tangy goat’s milk cheeses like Westfield Capri and buttery bloomy rinds like Nettle Meadow Kunik.

  • Pinot Noir

    Lighter bodied and delicate. Old World style generally offers more funk, New World more fruit.

    Old World Pinot: Flavors of fresh cherries and raspberry balanced by a barnyard funk and high minerality. Sometimes has floral aromas, reminiscent of rose petal.
    Pair with: Almost anything! Works with funky Frenchies Epoisses and Langres, or mild natural rinds like St. Nectaire.

    New World Pinot: More sugary, with jam-like fruit, dried cherries, oak, and spice.
    Pair with: Full, fatty flavors. Alpines, cheddars, and Manchego.
