L’Artisan Extravagant: Review
Divine and one of the go-to cheese in the Top Rated Australian Cheeses. L’Artisan Extravagant is a white mould triple cream in the style of Brillat Savarin. So soft and moreish. The rind has aroma of mushrooms and flour, while in the mouth there are pronounced lush dairy flavours, cauliflower and a deep umani. The finish has great length. This is superb cheesemaking. There’s really no excuse to buy D’Affinois or a French triple cream brie after eating Extravagant. This is essential stuff.
