ColoRouge is an excellent soft-ripened cow’s milk cheese that manages to get better with age. Produced by the small Colorado based MouCo cheese company, the ColoRouge is soft, creamy, and buttery. It is aged for two weeks and when it arrives it is mild and buttery but if you are willing to let it sit a few days longer a more complex and rich flavor emerges.

I first experienced ColoRouge at the ever excellent Cube Gourmet Shop in Los Angeles. They have a refined selection of cheeses and the ColoRouge stands out from their refined pack. Try it and see.
