MouCo PepBert is a soft-ripened cheese prepared using pasteurized cow's milk made by the MouCo Cheese Company in Fort Collins, Colorado, US. The process of making PepBert is similar to MouCo's flagship cheese, Camembert. The cheese is aged between 7 to 8 weeks; during ageing, green peppercorns are added which give a spicy flavour. A young PepBert has a firm and creamy texture with a tangy, citrusy taste. A fully matured cheese has a buttery, creamy texture with a peppery flavour. The cheese pairs well with Merlot.
