Its rind is a reflection of its terroir, hilly and cliff-gray with warm limestone tones.
The Vercors massif covers Isère and Drôme in the French Pre-Alps, and has given its name to a relatively little-known blue-veined AOP cheese. This label covers both cooperative and farmhouse production.
We offer a farmhouse cheese made by the GAEC de la Grange, an organic farm in the foothills of the Rhône Valley.
This beautiful cheese comes in a pretty wheel weighing just a few kilos, with a rind that reflects its terroir: hilly, cliff-gray with warm limestone tones. Some beautiful ochre pigmentations brighten it up in places. The paste features well-distributed touches of blue, surrounded by a creamy, almost candied ivory white. Notes of fresh mushrooms assert themselves on tasting, without outrageously dominating the lovely milder lactic hints, occasionally slipping in some more discreet hazelnut aromas. It’s definitely a cheese that deserves a wider audience.
