The cheese we received was perfect – the cheese is very mild despite it’s blue veins. Not to our taste.
Alsace - Lorraine region of France.
Wow, wow, wow. We shared this one with friends and they loved it too. Buttery but with a stinky element which makes it really interesting. Paired well with the Barolo we were drinking. Read more on it here.
This one again was perfect but it did not excite Jack.
Really, really great Comté. We’ll be reordering. Jack managed to save enough from his one-sitting devouring session that I got to taste it. The piece was much smaller than we would normally purchase.
Epoisses de Bourgogne
This was excellent, and slightly different from the Époisses we purchase locally that's made by Berthaut.
132 Euros – about $154 dollars for 7 cheeses including S&H. This works out to roughly $22/cheese including shipping.
The cheeses were very fresh and very perfect. Perhaps if anything a little too perfect for our tastes– if that’s possible. We’re used to eating Epoisses with some age on it. The Cendre and Fumani too were very firm in the center. The slice of Comte was tiny compared to what we usually purchase. It does not seem possible to adjust the amount of cheese received easily. The order is a minimum of 3 cheeses or a cheeseboard.
We were impressed by the quality of what we ordered. It’s on the expensive side and we have great cheese shops nearby so we would likely order only unusual cheeses or ones which should be eaten very fresh. I would definitely order again and recommend them. As we didn’t have need for customer service I can’t report on their handling of a problem.
