Bucheron was one of the first French goat cheeses exported to the U.S., an interesting fact considering the ubiquity of fresh cryo-vac chevre logs these days. Every sliced round of Bucheron offers two texture magic: a fat, sometimes inch thick, cream line forms beneath the downy, edible white rind- a perfect visual of surface ripening in action. The large format means that the creeping goo will never reach the center, so there's always fresh, fluffy, lemony chevre left for contrast.
Any dry, flinty blanc from its home of the Loire Valley will complete a trifecta of flavor.
Heublumen? That’s German for Hayflower. But add the little word Kase (German for cheese) to the end of it and you get something extraordinarily delicious!
Heublumenkase is a seductive blend of fragrant dried flowers, herbs, and grass-fed Austrian cow’s milk. Besides coming from high quality milk, this cheese takes on extra character through the selection of organic flowers such as safflower, blue mallow, peony and marigold, mingled with rosemary, oregano and a dash of unrefined rock salt. Pairs well with New World Chardonnay (USA, warmer climates): richly buttery and oaky, heavy notes of vanilla, brown butter, and tropical fruits.
We select each 90-pound wheel from France's Jura for desired age and flavor, this is our reserve Comte aged 16 Months. Considered one of the world's greatest cheeses Comte captures the essence of raw, mountain pasture-fed cow milk. Chosen wheels tend toward the sweetness of cooked milk, a bit of stone fruit and the quiet nuttiness of browned butter. Ideal for any cooking application, and classically melted in everything from fondue to Croque Monsieur, this Saint is divine with Rhone reds.
