The cheesemaker Michel Beroud is something of an icon in the Swiss cheesemaking world. He typifies the versatility of the region, having broken away from the expectations and constraints of Gruyère production. From the Canton du Vaud in Western Switzerland, this tender little morsel has a thin bloomy rind clinging to an almost-melting pate. Best enjoyed on the younger side, the consistency of the cheesemaking in the Fleurette's production is venerable. Light and milky on the palate, the persistence of flavours reveals a wealth of complexity: buttery straw, farmyard, sweet cream, with subtle floral notes. This a truly outstanding cheese.
