Crayeuse, meaning "Chalky," is an integral characteristic of this raw cow's milk cheese from Savoie. The cheese is set to age in a warm, moist cave that speeds ripening, developing a thick, creamy outer layer. When moved to a cooler cave, ripening slows, leaving an interior dense and chalky. The flavor is complex: lactic, mushroomy, and earthy blending into an elevated essence of buttered toast. The stunning yellow-mottling on the rind develops naturally as a result of cellulose in the cows' diet. You may already know that crayeuse can change your life - bring along cool climate wine and never look back.
