Vacherin Mont D’Or AOC is a wonderfully, soft, resin scented, seasonal cow’s milk cheese that is eagerly looked forward to enjoy during the colder months of the year. Produced in the mountainous Jura region of France, this cheese is made using the exceptionally sweet milk produced from the famous Montbeliarde cow, which is used during the summer months to make the famous fruity, firm, Comte AOC mountain cheese.
The cheese is wrapped and contained in slices of aromatic hand cut spruce bark known locally as “sangles”. The finished cheeses are then matured on spruce shelves to give an added dimension of flavour, and then boxed to contain the soft, fragrant, almost liquid interior. Vacherin Mont D’Or AOC can be enjoyed either spooned from the box and served at room temperature or baked gently in the oven (in the box) and served fondue style with crusty bread, crudités and warm new potatoes.
This is the perfect sharing cheese, and one which we think is an absolute must over the Christmas period. Pop this little beauty on your Christmas list to get the festivities going – enjoy with a chilled glass of champagne.
The individual cheese weighs 500g.
