A firm, summery cheese, rich and nutty with clear flavours of fresh milk and flowers, typical of the Tarentaise high mountain pastures. Well aged, with a thick brushed rind, and deep hazelnut flavours that are incomparable to any other cheese. Intensely fruity, yet savoury at the same time, reminiscent of butter, cream and hay. Beaufort is made from the milk of the Tarine and Abondance cows that graze on the aromatic, flower & herb filled, pollution-free Alpine pastures. The cheese is named after the small market town of its origin. This particular Beaufort we are currently have in stock is aged for at least 18 months to give an exceptionally intense flavour and finish. One of the world’s great cheeses. It will also make a sublime Croque Monsieur, gratin topping, souffle or salad, it a cheese with great melting properties
