Cambozola Black Label

Cambozola Black Label is a Masterpiece from the German company Käserei Champignon. This gourmet cheese is a triple cream soft-ripened blue cheese. Matured Through a longer ripening time in special cold cellars (cold-ripend), the result is a premium, soft ripened blue cheese with wonderful characteristics - exquisite blue veining occurring on the inside and a unique natural gray mold on the outside. Cheese lovers will appreciate the savory, nutty flavor with a sweet note.

It is made from the same blue Penicillium roqueforti mold used to make Gorgonzola, Roquefort, and Stilton. Cream is added to the milk, giving it a rich consistency. The rind of the cheese is similar to the Camembert. Cambozola is considerably milder than Gorgonzola featuring a smooth, creamy texture and subdued blue flavor. A longer ripening time enhances the taste and texture. A great introduction to blue cheese for those who might be intimidated by some of the more intense specimens on offer - try it with something bubbly and brut.
