Le Chatelain camembert cheese is imported from Normandy France and has been in production since the late 18th century. Camembert has a similar flavor profile to Brie, but entertains a deeper, earthier flavor and aroma. It has a hardened but edible rind, and a slightly nutty flavor and buttery texture.
In France, Camembert is typically enjoyed on a hunk of crusty baguette or on its own with no bread at all. It’s also enjoyed with simple accompaniments like fresh or dried fruit, drizzled with honey and nuts.
Camembert pairs well with white wines. When baked becoming thick and gooey it is delicious washed down with a nice pinot noir.
