French artisan cheese - Mimolette Vieille - 250g

Safe paymentsProtected delivery
This French version of the classic Dutch cheese Edam is coloured bright orange with the addition of Annatto, a seed from a bush native to South America. It has a dry, lunar, grey-brown pitted rind due to the introduction early on in the ageing process of cheese mites, which nibble on the rind, continuously exposing more of the pate to air. Very aged cheeses have the appearance of an cannonball, giving the cheese it’s nickname. The full rounded flavour of the cheese – salty, sweet, caramel-like – pairs perfectly with a good dry red wine.
