Smaller than a wheel of Comté, the Mousseron Jurassien is a firm, raw cow milk tomme crafted in eastern France’s Jura mountains. This marvelous cheese delivers complex flavors derived from the lush vegetation of the region. It is a smaller cheese than its larger cousin, Comté, so the Mousseron Jurassien matures more quickly, developing its full flavor at a younger age. The mushroom name (Mousseron) reflects the distinct flavor which gives this cheese a savory and light fruity finish. This cheese pairs well with Rhône and Merlot-dominant Bordeaux red wines, white Bordeaux, Muscadet, Rieslings, as well as lagers and wheat beers.
