The Camembert de Caractere (as the name suggest, a Camemert of character) is more than a simple cheese: it has become one of the symbols of French gastronomy. Camembert tends to be strong on the palate, woody, fruity, tender and soft. For more than two centuries, the small round cheese has been part of the psyche of an entire people and part of the national heritage. This petite wheel of fresh cheese would brighten up any holiday party. Camenbert De Caractere pairs well with fall fruits and Cabernet Sauvignon or Brouilly wines. Since the 1890s, it has been packaged in small boxes made of poplar wood.
