The Burgundy truffle (Tuber aestivum var uncinatum) is much more bumpy and irregular than its counterparts, uncinatum in Latin meaning hooked. Its warty skin is black, while its flesh is greyish mottled with fine white veins. Its taste is similar to that of the woody summer truffle , with notes of hazelnuts and mushrooms, however the Burgundy truffle has a more powerful aroma than its summer cousin, the summer truffle (Tuber aestivum).
