With a natural rind that resembles a cantaloupe and a paste the color of a pumpkin, aged Mimolette is made using the same production methods as Dutch Edam. Its flavor is fruity yet subtle, and improves with age. The taste is slightly salty with notes of butterscotch and an aroma of hazelnut, with a brittle texture that resembles that of a very aged Gouda.
Bucheron has an ivory-colored paste surrounded by a bloomy white rind. It is chalky and dense on the interior, and has a thin layer of creamy cheese just below the rind. The flavor is mildly goaty when it is young, and develops a sharper and more goaty flavor as it ages. Bucheron means “logger” in French.
Le Chablochon is made by Fruitères Chabert, a third generation family owned creamery founded in 1936. They use milk from neighboring dairies in the Savoie region, ensuring freshness and quality. Chablochon was inspired by the classic Reblochon de Savoie. The thin orange rind encapsulates a rich, soft, sticky paste. Flavors are buttery with subtle notes of grass and hay.
