Préféré De Nos Montagnes
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. You see, years ago the real deal was banned from import due to its high moisture and raw milk status. After a flurry of impostors, we finally found this unassuming offering with uncanny resemblance. Pasteurized, yes, but for no lack of that unctuous buttery flavor or tender edible rind. A hint of pungency pushes this decadence over the edge. Old pairings die hard - go with a fruity Beaujolais.
