Nutty but also fruity, Mimolette is a hard cheese with a French accent. That is, it’s deliciously complex.

The sharp, nutty, fruity taste of Mimolette also includes sweet hints of butterscotch. Its brilliant orange color makes it the focus of any cheese platter. Try Mimolette with a rustic red wine or ale.
