Beaufort Chalet D'AlpageSavoie, France Unpasteurised Cow's Milk
Beaufort Chalet D'Alpage is a classic alpine cheese from small traditional producers making cheeses from the summer milk, made and matured at high altitudes in mountain chalets. Made with the milk from Abondance and Tarine cows, it requires 300 litres of milk to produce just one cheese.
The high mountain cheeses benefit from cattle grazing on supremely clean, unpolluted summer pastures studded with aromatic flowers and alpine flora, ultimately producing fragrant and elegant cheeses.
Creamy, pale gold colour and smooth in texture, the floral sweet almond nuttiness remains refined, even with ageing.
