Fleur Du Maquis, also known as Brin d’Amour, is a Corsican cheese made from the milk of Lacaune ewes. This semi-soft cheese has a creamy, firm, and moist textured pate, covered by a natural, flavoured rind. It takes between 2 weeks to 2-3 months for the cheese to fully ripen. During the making process, the cheese is coated with a mixture of rosemary, fennel seeds, juniper berries, and the occasional bird’s eye chili, giving it a sour, citrusy taste. As it ages, the cheese develops blue-grey molds as the pate absorbs the herbal flavors of the rind. The strong flavours of the cheese are balanced by the delicate herbs, while its musty and nutty aroma adds to its appeal. Fleur Du Maquis pairs nicely with Albarino, Riesling, and Tempranillo wines.
