Petit Prefere de nos Montagnes 250g
If we had a nickel for every time someone asked us for Reblochon—that famous French washed rind from Savoie—well, we probably wouldn’t have been so driven to find an apt substitution. The real deal was banned from import due to its high moisture and raw milk status. After a flurry of imposters, we finally found this unassuming offering with uncanny resemblance. Enjoy the sticky orange rind, which when cut into wafts an aroma of hazelnuts and oaky white wine. A hint of pungency pushes this decadence over the edge, where unctuous buttery flavor and tender rind linger. In this smaller format, the cheese is the ideal size for a platter or to bring to a party. Old pairings die hard—go with a fruity Beaujolais.
