Petit Rubis is a soft surface-ripened washed rind cheese. It features a thin, bloomy rind when young that develops with age. The red edible casein stamp denotes its authenticity. Young, its subtle taste offers hints of fresh bread. Fully ripened, the taste is rich, typical of mountain cheese; raw milk and ripe cream flavours blend in beautifully with floral and hazelnut notes. It is just as good for cooking as it is at the end of a meal.
