Fromage à pâte molle à croûte lavée -
Soft cheese with washed rind

Produced as soft cheese with surface mould (but without addition of white mould). During the maturation the surface is wahed/brushed in saltwater or a solution of a selected bacteria culture, in order to promote the maturation. This will give a red/orange colour to the rind, and develop a characteristic flavour.
