Its name, word by word, means "soft" or "smooth (doux)" and mountain (montagne). It is a delightful cheese, and matches well with ales, light sparkling wines, and champagne.

This is one of my favorite cheeses, but for the last ten years or so, I've found it almost impossible to get. Marketing of this in the US needs to get better.

I live in Loudon,TN, 30 miles south of Knoxville. Can you tell me where I can buy Doux de Montagne. The only place I have found it is at Jungle Jims in Cincinnati,Ohio. If there is no place local, can it be mail ordered from somewhere?

Thanks!
Paul
