(2 customer reviews)

Cheese Type: Uncooked, Pressed cheese


Called rye cheese in the Middle Ages because it was ripened on rye straw, Saint-Nectaire production stretched from Mont-Dore in the mountains of Auvergne to Aubrac. Saint-Nectaire was first used by peasants to pay their taxes. It was introduced to the court of King Louis XIV by the marshal of France Henri de La Ferté-Senneterre, where the cheese immediately gained the king’s favour.

Saint-Nectaire AOC has a creamy paste with hazelnutty, herbal, and undergrowth flavours. The smell of the rind is typical from its ripening process, it smells the mushroom, cellar, and hay.

Try it with a warm lentils salad, shaved carrots or even walnuts!

Store in the fridge, wrapped in cheese paper, and consume within a few days.

Wine Pairing:

Red wines (Cotes du Rhone, Beaujolais, Bordeaux)

Appelation Origine Controlee (AOC) label
Appelation Origine Protegge (AOP) label
