Beaufort Chalet d'Alpage
A classic high mountain cheese from small traditional producers selecting cheeses from the summer milk forms, made and matured at high altitudes in mountain chalets. The pate is a creamy, pale gold colour, smooth in texture, but as it ages cracks appear, ripening the cheese. The flavours are lovely – with an almost sweet almond nuttiness, the taste is never abrasive on the tongue, even with aged cheeses. 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.
