Best Cheese Fairfield County

I love Darien Cheese and any cheese with truffles but Darien never gets new varieties with specifically truffles. That was the only way I have ever tried truffles and I am very hooked.
Any suggestions? Didn't love the new cheese store in Greenwich very snotty and small variety.
I went to the cheese shop in Westport a week or so ago asking about Burrata cheese. The guy explained why he didn't carry it, which I found interesting because I didn't know it had such a short shelf life. Unfortunately he was very standoffish and totally turned me off. I was going to buy some other things because they did seem to have a nice variety, but I was pretty put off by his attitude, especially since I was the only one in the store! Oh well...maybe I caught him on a bad day...or he has something against burrata!
You may also want to try budding gourmet in Fairfield - it's a cute store that has everything related to entertaining, and they bring cheese in from artisinal. Lots of fun is the combined wine/cheese tasting they do on Saturdays with Harry's wine next door.
I used to buy a beautiful cheese from the Darien shop with specks of real black truffle in it.........It was somewhat of a parmesan-like cheese.......easily shavable over pastas or risotto.......also great for noshing on too..........ask Ken, the more than helpful owner, about it......maybe he can order it if they don't carry it anymore?
