A natural rind, bloomy with wild moulds from the cellar; predominantly grey/white in colour with a scattering of blue, or even orange, specks. A soft yet dense cut that is close, with a slightly grainy texture that is satiny and smoothly creamy. Chalky white to matte ivory in colour. A highly lactic flavour with just the correct amount of saltiness and underlying notes of citrus and cellar fermented cheese. Full, sustained and particular.
