This cheese (Reblochon style) from Jura, France, is aged in a cellar or cave, where it is turned every two days and washed with brine or whey to speed the aging process. As a result of this process, the rind forms a yellowish, velvety exterior. Denice du Jura has an exceptionally creamy texture, a nutty aftertaste, and a delicate herbal aroma.
