Cambozola is one of the most well-known cheeses produced by German dairy company group Kaserei Champignon, and this award-winning Black Label version is a recent variation on the classic. Though this velvety blue cheese from Bavaria goes by another name across the pond (Montagnolo Affiné), it’s easy to see why it’s an international heartthrob.

A buttery triple crème laced with blue veining, Cambozola “Black Label” is aged longer and at a cooler temperature than traditional Cambozola, and its dusky gray rind is produced using a different strain of white mold.

Tasting Notes

Cambozola Black Label melts delicately on the palate, and this Black Label version boasts bolder sweet and nutty flavors. The end result is a cheese with blue veining that’s subtle enough for sensitive palates, with the crowd-pleasing texture of a triple crème.

Pairings
