Chaumes has a distinctive golden soft rind that has a bright tangerine-orange color. The interior is smooth, supple; a rich mellow cheese. The nutty, almost meaty taste and aroma are mild. This gourmet cheese is made of pasteurized milk.
This gourmet cheese, from the high mountain pastures of the Vosges, is less pronounced than a Munster or an Epoisses, but stronger than a Port Salut. Chaumes may be a good starting point for those who would like to try the very pungent cheeses one day.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
