Product details

Four classical elements combine to create this new selection, containing cheeses sprung from one of four places. The volcanic soils of Cantal, the earthy caves of Roquefort, the lush valleys of the Loire river, or from the open-air heights of the Swiss mountains.

EARTH - ROQUEFORT CARLES
160g - Sheep, Raw Milk
Unpasteurised sheep's milk and matured in the Roquefort caves.

FIRE - SAINT NECTAIRE
230g - Cow, Raw Milk
Affineur Xavier collects his St. Nectaire cheeses at two or three days’ old and matures them in his cellars, where the natural mould forms and the flavour develops. The finished cheese has a creamy, supple to soft texture, and a distinctive ‘earthy’ flavour

WATER - CHABICHOU
250g - Goat, Raw Milk
Delicious unctuous goats’ cheese from the Poitou region of France.

AIR - AFFINEUR WALO LE GRUYÈRE EXTRA MATURE
250g - Cow, Raw Milk
Sweet and savoury with floral and fruity notes, but it is the silky texture with the crunchy crystals and immense flavour that set this cheese apart from other Gruyères.

Keep your cheeses refrigerated below 8°.
