Cantalet, related to the British Farmhouse Cheddars, is a cow's milk cheese from the Auvergne in south-central France. It is weighty, moist, creamy, with a lovely sweet and milky quality. Cantalet is a smaller version of a cheese known as Cantal; both pair wonderfully with reds: from Merlot to Pinot Noir, and many whites: from Sauvignon Blanc to Gewürztraminer. Please note: Because our cheeses are cut by hand exact weights may vary slightly.
Each cheese comes with a fromager note (describing the cheese with beverage pairing suggestions) and a cheese serving tag identifying its name, origin and milk type.
