Prefere De Nos Montagnes

$22.99/Lb


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. Old pairings die hard—go with a fruity Beaujolais.

  • Farmhouse Ales & Sours

    Farmhouse, Saison, Bière de Garde, Lambic, Sour Beer

    Farmhouse ales, instead of being driven by malt or hops, depend on the yeast for their distinctive spicy, floral, and tart flavors. Commonly made by brewers in France and Belgium, farmhouse ales are usually light in color and body and quite effervescent. From time to time, brewers allow wild yeasts to ferment the beer, resulting in a brew that falls somewhere in between pleasantly bright to bracingly sour.

    Pair with: Mushroomy Brie Fermier or funky, bacony Epoisses are matches made in heaven.



  • Merlot

    A smooth and medium-bodied wine with a more rounded flavor than other reds. Dark fruits are present but with minimal tannins and no noticeable spice.

    Pair with: Earthy tommes like Toma Walser, mellow Fontina, or a lightly aged goat cheese like Leonora.
