 Product Description

A cows milk cheese that is aged 4 months. It has a washed rind and tastes like nuts and fruit. Morbier is a semi-soft cheese with a fresh hay aroma. Contrary to its smell, Morbier has a mild taste and leaves a wonderful, nutty aftertaste. With a bold & complex flavor, Morbier has a yellow-ivory interior and is wrapped by a creamy-brown crust.

Defined by the dark vein of vegetable ash streaking through it middle. Today, the ash is purely decorative, a nod to the method by which Morbier was once produced in Franche-Comté. Traditionally, the evening's fresh curds were sprinkled with ash to prevent the formation of a rind overnight. The next morning, new curds were laid upon the thin layer of ash to finish off the wheel.

Named for a little farm town in France, this semisoft cow's cheese was originally made with left over cheese for personal consumption by the cheesemakers. 

Perfect Pairings

You can serve it alone but it is great on sandwiches and melts great so you may want to try it in a grilled cheese sandwich.

Morbier is excellent served with Gewürztraminer or Pinot Noir.
