Delice de Bourgogne or Brillat-Savarin Affine is a decadent triple-cream gourmet cheese and was the fruit of the imagination of the famous gastronome of the 18th century, Brillat-Savarin. The remarkably somewhat pungent, moldy aroma of Delice de Bourgogne belies the velvet-smooth texture and subtle taste of this cheese; the tangy, sour cream-like tartness reveals that creme fraiche is added to increase the richness of Delice de Bourgogne.

The cheese is similar in appearance and texture to the classic Brie. The outside is yellowish-white in color, with a soft, chalk-like dusty rind. The first layer is soft and smooth and stark white in color.

The center of the Delice cheese is thicker and more consistent than the outside layer and is comparable to that of cream cheese. The blending of the stronger flavored exterior and the more subtle and soft interior makes Delice de Bourgogne an unusually delicate gourmet cheese; creating a smooth, melt-in-the-mouth texture.
