Couer de Neufchatel
A.O.P. One of Frances oldest cheeses dating back to the 6th century. Heart shaped it, like Camembert comes from Normandy and indeed is similar to Camembert but with a saltier, sharper taste.
Neufchatel is very versatile and can be paired with many wines but in particular a light Californian red, a Sauvignon or a chardonnay.
