Boursault is a French triple-cream cow's milk cheese known for its luxurious and creamy texture. The high butterfat content in the milk used for its production contributes to its rich and smooth texture. The cheese is covered with a thin, edible, bloomy white rind, which develops as the cheese matures. Boursault has a mild and buttery flavour with a little tanginess.
This cheese pairs well with fresh fruits, crusty bread, and sparkling wines. It is suitable for spreading on crackers or bread.
