As Comté, Beaufort, born in the Middle Ages and descendant of ‘Vachelin’ was, at first, created to keep the milk longer and have a protein source all year long for the family consumption. Beaufort AOP can be found in 3 versions: Winter, Summer and Chalet d’Alpage (the latter two being often regarded as the tastiest).
Our Summer Beaufort was produced between May 2021 and October 2021, and is full of the characteristic floral notes of this season.
The hard and yellow straw paste of this AOC cheese is full of alpine flowers aroma. Creamy, nutty, and buttery, Beaufort is melting on the palate. This charismatic cheese is ideal to pair with walnuts and a glass of Chardonnay.
