French Cheese Collection
- Online Only
French cheeses are among the most buttery, aromatic delicacies in the world. Our diverse trio comes from affineur Rodolphe Le Meunier, who ages the cheese in his Loire Valley facility to the perfect ripeness. Hand picked for us by the European cheese specialists at Fresca Italia, our selection includes:
Cremeux de Citeaux: A triple-crème cow’s milk cheese featuring an incredibly creamy, thick consistency, this buttery beauty has a bouquet of toasted nuts, mushrooms and truffles, and is delightful paired with fruity white wines or Champagne.
Fourme d’Ambert: This milky, dense, pasteurized blue cow’s milk cheese is laced with seductive notes of heavy cream. Its bold flavor matches well with a full-bodied Pinot Noir or a Côtes du Rhône.
Jeune Autize: A wedge of raw goat’s milk cheese with a washed rind made in small batches by a single farmer. Earthy and pungent, with a dense, supple texture and mild, buttery flavor with hints of goat's milk and lemon. It’s perfect for the cheese novice, and pairs nicely with crisp white wines.
