Morbier

$17.99/Lb


Morbier? Try More Bien! From the Jura comes this raw cow's milk cheese. Legend has it that Comte makers with extra curds at the end of each day sprinkled them with soot to protect them from flies until they could add curds from the following morning's milking. The wheels were then pressed and washed with brine. Today the layer is one of vegetable ash, a merely a decorative cue to a washed rind that we finish to pungent and peanutty perfection. No dry rinds here. Murray's cave infuse this bad boy with flavor-saving humidity. Go for a terroir pairing with oxidized Jura whites.
