Made in Corsica from the milk of Lacaune ewes, this cheese’s name translates to “flower of the maquis”.
The sheep freely browse Corsica’s scrubby, Mediterranean landscape and during production, to enhance the natural flavors present in the milk, the small cheeses are encrusted with herbs from these areas.
When young, Fleur du Maquis is firm and moist, with citrus flavors and a slightly sour tang. With age the rind becomes dotted with a blue-grey mold. The texture of the cheese also becomes softer, absorbing the savory and herbaceous flavors of the rind. Yum!
