Bouncy. Nutty. Farmyardy.
Origin: France, Franche-Comté
Style and Texture: Washed rind, semi-firm
Milk Treatment: Raw
This washed rind cheese from the Juras is full of character. The legend has it that back in the day the layer of ash was added to preserve the curd between milkings. But today it’s there purely for decorative flair. This raw cow’s milk cheese has a balanced pungency and nutty finish. During its maturation the rind is washed with special brine which contributes to its bright orange colour and powerful aroma.
