The French gourmet cheese Affine is washed with the French Chablis, hence the name Affine au Chablis. Chablis is a prestigious white wine of Burgundy to establish a very rich, aromatic profile. Slightly smaller than its popular sibling Epoisses, an Affine is washed in Chablis instead of marc. This distinction gives a slightly sweet, gentler punch to the finish of Affine than the Epoisses. During the maturation of Affine, the yellow-orange color will become stronger growing from the heart of the cheese. Near to maturity, the pigmentation will be more constant, and the flavors of Burgundy will surface. The cheese is soft and can be spooned, and Affidelice has a concentrated richness and a creamy texture.
