Squidgy & Savoury Trou du Cru

Trou du Cru is a small, yet punchy French, washed-rind cheese made with cows' milk. The texture is soft and yielding, with a  delicious, lasting finish. 

Originally made in the early 1980s by Robert Berthaut, Trou du Cru is a baby version of their famous Époisses; a washed rind cheese from the Bourgogne region. It is washed in the local Marc de Bourgogne eau-de-vie. Due to being smaller than Époisses, the rind has a greater impact on the flavour.

Our Quality Manager Jazz Reeves describes Trou du Cru as "a squidgy and pungent cheese, with savoury and meaty notes and a flavour that lingers in the mouth". 

Perfect paired with Marc de Bourgogne eau-de-vie.
