Once cut, the Saint-Nectaire has a soft, fluid and smelly paste, of a creamy colour. Its taste has a hint of hazelnut, due to the aromatic flora where the cheese ages.
While many cheeses have fruity essences, there aren't many with a flavor profile that is dominated by fruit flavors. St. Nectaire (meaning sweet nectar) has a similar smell to that of an extremely ripe nectarine, although the names are not related. The cheese has a fruity aroma, rich texture, and a sweet flavor that we have yet to discover in any other cheese. You're certain to enjoy this unique, fruity delight!
