The Noble is a pasteurized cow's milk soft cheese, refined for 2 days. It uncovers delicious aroma of fresh mushrooms, while its soft and supple heart brings flavors of butter and cream. Its texture is silky and well flowing when ripe. It definitely is a “noble” cheese.
This semi-soft, uncooked, pressed cheese is surface-ripened for over 6 weeks and made with pasteurized milk. Its rind is washed and rubbed in brine, which gives it an orangey colour lightly covered with a white bloom. It has a smooth and creamy texture and is dotted with small holes (eyes) throughout. Its milky, slightly acidic aroma and buttery taste vary from mild to strong depending on the age of the cheese. This low-fat cheese is perfect with an amber beer or a fruity, vibrant wine.
