Discover the rich history and authentic flavors of St. Nectaire farmhouse cheese, dating back to the 17th century and cherished by King Louis XIV.
Made from the finest cow's milk, predominantly Holstein and Montbéliarde cows, with a touch of Salers cows milk, this cheese features a creamy, unctuous texture and a captivating rind displaying various hues.
Savour the delightful hint of hazelnut in its semi-firm, aromatic paste, a result of the cheese aging amidst the aromatic flora of the lush grasslands and volcanic landscapes surrounding the Pays des Monts-Dore.
Crafted with whole, unpasteurized milk, each batch is lovingly crafted twice daily and aged on rye straw mats under the expert care of affineurs, culminating in a timeless masterpiece that embodies the true essence of French tradition.
Enjoy this complex cheese with your favourite red or white wine, or a complex craft beer.
