ABONDANCE

SAVOIE

UNPASTEURISED

TRADITIONAL RENNET

High mountain cheese with a creamy rich texture and a melting fruity flavour. The smooth hard rind has a lovely russet colour from the light brine washing it receives during maturation. Eaten young, the hazelnut sweetness comes through, but with more aged cheeses – around 7 - 9 months – there is a slight bitterness, and a sort of palate-tingling sensation, which is a good foil for the richness. The Montbeliarde, Abondance and Tarine breeds produce the milk for this cheese.
