Description: Mont d'Or or Vacherin du Haut-Doubs is a raw cow's milk cheese from Franche-Comté, France. Mont d'Or is highly seasonal. Traditionally made with the winter milk of the same cows that produce Gruyere/ Comté in the summer, this cheese is only available from 10th September until 10th May. The AOC requires that the cheese is produced with the milk of only two breeds of cows: Montbéliardes and Simmental. The cheese has a soft, pale brown rind, with deep, wave-like indentations and a yielding texture. Mont d'Or is encircled with spruce bark and packed in a circular spruce box, which both flavours the cheese and gives to the rind a specific appearance of hills. The flavour is rich, a little sweet, with grassy undertones. Mont d'Or can be eaten like a Fondue or on a table cheese.
Weight: Approx. 450g/piece
Wine Pairing: This cheese is best paired with wines such as Beaujolais Nouveau, Côtes du Jura and Champagne.
Our cheeses can be kept for at least a week from the date of delivery. After opening the initial wrapping paper, we recommend to store the cheeses in a clean, dry cling wrap and store them in the lower compartment of the fridge which is usually not too cold or dry.
