L'Explorateur is a soft-ripened French cow's milk cheese produced by Fromagerie du Petit Morin in Île-de-France. It has a squat cylindrical shape, a smooth unpressed texture and white bloomy rind. For the first time, it was created in 1950s to honor the first US Satellite – Explorer. It is a triple crème cheese with about 75% of a fat content of the dry matter. Try to pair it with Red wine.
When ripe, Explorateur's ivory interior has a delicate aroma, a salty, mushroom-like tang, and a delicate piquant flavor akin to buttery baked hazelnuts. Explorateur is usually served as an appetizer with crusty French bread paired with Champagne or a dry red wine—a chianti or red zinfandel, for instance. In the French tradition, it's often served at the end of a meal as a dessert accompanied by a medley of ripe, fresh fruit.
