Le Conquerant Demi Pont L'eveque is a pungent, monastic washed rind cheese specially made for Will Studd by the Graindorge family dairy. This French cheese comes from Pays d’Auge in Normandy, France and is made from whole milk sourced from the designated AOC region for Pont l'eveque.
It name means small size which also indicates how quickly this soft surface-ripened cheese will ripen compared to larger counterparts. The cheese comes wrapped in wax paper and packed in a poplar wood box to create an environment that will aid in its ripening.
Le Conquerant Demi Pont L'eveque is best enjoyed when the chalky centre breaks down to a gooey fudgy texture with a tantalizing creamy finish. Take the pungent smell in your stride as it is an important part of all washed rind cheeses.
