Le Mov’li – Fleurs de Foin
Characteristics : A soft, bloomy white rind, tomme-style cheese infused with hay flowers, aged 12 days
Type of Milk : Raw cow’s milk from the cows raised on the family’s farm
Tasting Notes : A Gold medal Award winner at the 2022 Concours Suisse des Produits du Terroir, this cheese hits all the right notes. It smells like the countryside with fresh hay and mushroom. It is creamy, grassy, with a light texture. You can feel the pieces of hay but in a pleasant way reminding you of the terroir the milk comes from.
Serving Suggestion : A lovely addition to an apéro and a great conversation starter. Be sure to allow to rest at room temperature before enjoying to allow the delicate hay flower flavors to evolve.
Characteristics : A semi-hard cheese aged 5 months
Type of Milk : Raw cow’s milk from the local mountain pastures
Tasting Notes : Taignon is a cheese with character whose name refers to the inhabitants of the Franches-Montagnes region. It has an intense aroma due to its long ripening time. Taste the terroir with this cheese as you fill your senses with notes of hay, nuts – and as described by the fromager, the rich diversity of the region’s plant life.
Serving Suggestion : Serve with a chilled white wine at a Spring apéro or melt on top of potatoes or grilled bread.
