Vieux Lille cheese

Vieux-Lille is a Maroilles cheese made in Avesnois (not in Lille) in the Nord département of the French region of Nord-Pas-de-Calais and comes from unpasteurised cows' milk with a fat content of 45%.

It is a square block measuring 13cm by 13cm and 5-6cm high and weighing 800g. It is made all year round. The 3 months brining process eliminates any rind, and the paste has a moist surface which is slightly grey in colour. Although the cheese holds together when cut, the consistency is best described as semi-soft. It is matured for 5-6 months and has a strong aroma, with a more pronounced, salty, spicy flavour than Maroilles.

Vieux-Lille is also known as Gris de Lille, Puant Macéré, Puant de Lille, Fromage fort de Béthune and formerly Maroilles Gris.
