French Gourmet Cheese

Browse our selection of imported French gourmet cheeses. Mention French Cheese and the mind immediately conjures up images of Brie, of Camembert, of the great blues, of the pungent aromas of the great stinky cheeses - surely every gourmet has their own image of French Cheese. France for years has set the quality bar for many of the smaller cheese makers all over the world who hope to at best, imitate the great French cheeses. The French protect a number of their cheeses by a Protected Designation of Origin (AOC in French), stringent designations of geographical origin for traditional specialties. Do treat yourself to our great French gourmet cheeses, and share your opinions with others in a product review.

France also has a large variety of raw milk cheeses, many of which are not available in the US due to USFDA regulations. Fortunately, some of the great French cheese makers do make their iconic cheeses in a pasteurized version; a viable alternative to those raw milk cheeses that we are unable to obtain in the US.
