Day 569: How to Save / How to Splurge Post-Parisian Dispatch

Remember back to Day 560 when I told you all of my excursions around Paris and a visit to one of my favorite Fromager Affineur's -- Christian Le Lann? Well if you are in the market for a Parisian splurge then I recommend that you pick up some of their Fiance des Pyrenees, pictured below, clocking in at 49.90 Euro per kilo.

Wondering what this pricey little cheese is all about?

It is obviously produced in the Pyrenees as implied by its name and is a raw goat's milk washed rind disk of creamy cheesy goodness. The classic orange washed rind imparts a faint tangy pungence, nothing over the top but a nice twist. The ivory interior is smooth, luscious, and round with notes of milky lacticness and hints of bright citrusy grassy-ness on the finish.
