12 Days of Cheesemas–Day 2

It’s my “Oh, my” cheese. Let me put this into perspective for you. Butter has at least 80% butterfat. Delice D’Argental comes in at 72% butterfat. And it’s cut with creme fraiche, propelling this to the top of my favorite triple creme bries. While many will swoon over a wedge of Delice de Bourgogne, with a butterfat content of 75%, it’s the added dimension of the creme fraiche that elevates D’Argental over its fellow countryman. I don’t recommend pairings often, but a glass of Champagne or Prosecco is MEANT for this cheese.
