Made from the rich and floral raw milk of cows grazing in Haut-Livradois. Balanced sweetness and sharpness of the sturdy, elastic paste gently collide into a long nutty finish.
Almost a slightly wet (it sometimes looks like little tears oozing out of the cheese) chewy density with a fine nutty texture. Perfect for eating as a table cheese and also as one of the cheeses to use for fondue.
We previously had a Swiss raceltte at the store, which explains the comments from a review below!
