The Arômes au Gène de Marc is a fermier cheese that is produced in a wine-making region using an ancient method of curing and preserving. The ripe cheese is placed in a barrel of marc (pressed grapes’ damp skins, pips, and stalks) which gradually permeate the cheese.
Note: When cured in marc brandy, the cheese is referred to as Arômes au Gène de Marc, and when cured in white wine, it’s called Aromes de Lyon. (source)
