Exploreteur is a cows milk triple crème cheese from the Isle de France region in France. This cheese was first introduced in the 1950's and named after US launched satellite, "Exploror". Its cylindrical shape has a white bloomy rind, an ivory colored creamy pate and has approximately 75% butterfat. The pate is extremely rich and buttery with slightly sweet and salty undertones. As the cheese ages, the cheese becomes firmer and dryer in texture, resulting in a more full and nutty flavor.
