Peyrigoux is a pasteurised cow’s milk cheese that has an ivory coloured creamy soft paste with a mild spicy flavour that is surprisingly fine and fresh with an ultra-rich buttery taste. This delicious and unusual cheese has a melt-in-the-mouth, creamy soft texture. The paste is dense, moist, and slightly chalky with enough lusciousness and creaminess. As the cheese ages, it acquires a mushroomy and a refreshing citrusy taste.
Peyrigoux comes from the Perigord region of France, an area most famous for Truffles. Shaped like a wreath, Peyrigoux is very distinctive. As the cheese matures it becomes finer and creamier. The ideal cheese for those who love triple-cream styles and a great alternative to Delice de Bourgogne.
