Milk Pasteurized cow
Age: 1-2 months
Soumaintrain is made in the Burgundy region of France. It is washed in a mixture of brine and Marc de Bourgogne to give it's orangy colour and full bodied aroma. When young, it is mild, buttery with a chalky center core that softens as it gets to room temperature.
With age, it becomes pungent and will be completely runny inside. At this point it is a much stronger cheese and pairs well with Chablish or even sparkling wines. It is sold inside of a small wooden box so that when it is ripe, you will be able to just scoop it out and put it on a beautifully crusty baguette.
