Available by the 125 gram piece

Produced in the Alsace region of southeastern France, a washed rind cheese made from pasteurized cow's milk in a distinct oval shape, and decorated with a fern leaf. Produced by Maison Fischer, the aroma of Gres des Vosges is quite pungent and reminiscent of an Alsacian Muenster. Cheeses are matured for three weeks, and washed with a brine solution that stimulates the growth of the Bacterium Linens, the culture that gives the cheeses their sticky, orange-pink rind and pungent aroma. Flavors are very clean and lactic, with notes of fruit and straw.
