Each autumn the arrival of seasonal Vacherin Mont D’or is always a special day. This sumptuous cheese is made only between 15th August and 15th March each year when the milk produced by cows grazing the Jura mountain pastures in France is too fatty to make Comté. Instead, the cheesemakers produce rich and meltingly soft Vacherin Mont D'Or. This luxurious washed rind cheese is pungent and creamy with sweet, grassy notes and resin flavours imparted from its spruce bark casing.
The arrival of Vacherin let’s you know Christmas is coming! It's fantastic straight from its wooden box or baked for a mini fondue.
Country of Origin
The Vacherin Mont D’Or was delicious with pancetta-wrapped new potatoes. We also loved the chilli jam.
