Delice de Bourgogne

Délice de Bourgogne is from French cow’s milk cheese from the Burgundy region of France.  It is very rich and creamy because cream is added twice to the milk during the making of the cheese.  It also has a strong pungent aroma due to its ripening process. While it is similar to brie, it is softer and the smell and taste is much stronger and muskier, not to mention double the price.  I like it.  I would even say I prefer it over brie, but it is an acquired taste, best served spread on French baguette bread and served with a strong red wine that can cut the stronger flavor.  Its almost like bitter cream cheese, but you would not put it on a bagel, but a much more firm type of European type of bread.
