The French have a vast selection of gourmet cheeses and we have created a gourmet sampler of many of the types of cheese from France. Our Handful of French Cheese shows the diversity of gourmet cheeses this country has to offer:
Comte - (8 oz.) also known as Gruyere de Comte, is made from the milk of the Montbeliard cow. The cheese is hard, straw-colored, contains some medium-size holes with a floral aroma with nutty fudge flavors developing in the more mature cheese.
Petit Agour - (10 oz.) - Basque sheep's milk cheese from Southwest of France. It has a firm but buttery texture, and a flavor that is nutty and blossoming, full of the flavors of the pureness from the Pyrenees mountains.
Saint Andre - (7 oz.) is a triple cream cheese made with cow's milk, it has a bloomy white rind, that is as soft as velvet and the flavor is rich, creamy, all soft.
Bleu d'Auvergne - (8 oz.) has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp.
This assortment will be packed in our Glossy Burgundy Gift Box with an elegant ribbon to complete a beautiful present.
Please note that we will substitute any item that is temporarily out of stock with a similar item of equal or greater value.
