Le
Montagnard

The Montagnard des Vosges, as the name implies, is a mountain cheese with a strong character. It is an intensely creamy cheese with pleasant, earthy flavors, but without any sharpness at the finish. It is excellent as a table cheese with rustic bread or a baguette. The Montagnard is best enjoyed with a Pinot Gris, or Chardonney that will highlight its strong nature.

PROFILE

Le Montagnard Made from cow's milk in the eastern region of France, this cheese has subtle wood aromas and earthy tones.

A washed rind cheese, it bares the colors of autumn on its rind: the bright orange exterior hides a creamy, rich paste full of tasty promise. The texture is smooth, unctuous, and melting, reminiscent of the fresh, milky aromas of mountain pastures. The Montagnard is soft and slightly pungent, with an edible rind.
