Similar to its cousin, Morbier, Montboissié is semi-soft cheese with a mild, but yeasty flavor. Formerly ash, this cheese is characterized by a line of red wine lees running through its middle, which is gorgeous on a cheese plate.

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.
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.
Sharp flavorful blue cheese. A good starting block for many a cheese counter. A good introduction to the more flavorful blue cheeses.
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.
What makes Belletoile triple crème brie different from other soft-ripened cheeses like traditional brie and camembert is the addition of extra cream before the production process. While other soft cheeses add some cream in the pre-production process, triple créme brie adds an extra amount of cream which gives Belletoile its wonderful, creamy and mellow mouthfeel. Because of the rind that protects the cheese while it ripens, Belletoile can be enjoyed for weeks after opening as it softens and ages. Our secret recipe includes living cheese cultures, so you will notice different flavor profiles as the cheese matures, starting out fresh and mild but turning more creamy and aromatic in taste as the cheese continues to age.
