  • Includes:

    Cantalet Dore

    Sometimes described as the French cousin of English Farmhouse Cheddar, Cantalet is a semi-hard cow's milk cheese that displays fresh buttery flavors when young then deepens into a sharp, earthy expression of its native Auvergne region as it matures. The paste is dense, rich, and creamy with a slight crumble that increases with age, while the rustic rind brings to mind the long history of the style, dating back 2,000 years to the time of the Gauls and coming to prominence at the table of Louis XIV. This is truly a heritage cheese worth savoring.

    Cantalet Dore complements a vast variety of reds, but for an off-the-path experience open a bottle of gold-toned Gewurztraminer and enjoy the interplay of sweet, aromatic wine with the umami-edged Cantalet.

    Petit Basque

    Though it may share a herringbone-patterned rind and an area of origin with the better known Manchego, Petit Basque is a sheep's milk beauty entirely its own. Succulent and creamy with a smooth, inviting paste, Petit Basque is less gamey and more approachable than many of its more "sheepy" brethren. Which is not to say it's simple; roasted nuts, stone fruit, and a subtle note of caramelized creme brulee shell all offer themselves to the attentive palate in a robust slice of this refreshingly young cheese from the Pyrenees.

    Match an agreeable wedge of Petit Basque with an equally generous bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau for an exuberant and immediate fruit forward pairing, perfect for an early evening cheese course or a late summer picnic.


    From the Northern Italian region of Veneto, this irresistible semi-soft cheese is pasteurized from cow's milk and laced with delicate flecks of truffle. The rind is rubbed in truffle oil and aged in a coating of nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon, licorice, cloves, and fennel. A thin layer of ash covers the spiced rind as the cheese ages, which is where this creamy cheese gets its name - Sottocenere essentially means "under ash".

    Aromatic, unusual and delicate, the silky indulgence of Sottocenere is perfectly suited to the sparkle of Lambrusco or an Italian Barbera.

    Comte Extra Des Monts-Jura

    In the Jura Mountains on the French-Swiss border, freshly made wheels of sweet, grassy summer-milk Comte are collected from local fruitieres by the Seignemartin family and cellared on spruce planks for a minimum of 15 months. The mild white Comte matures into a rich, nutty wheel with a dusty rind and a light caramel paste. Tasting reveals toffee, fruit, and a lingering salt finish balanced by the remaining sweetness of the summer milk. All Comte is judged by the strict standards of its region; only wheels with the highest marks are granted Extra status and imprinted with the green sigil seen on Comte Extra Des Monts-Jura.

    A complex cheese that can match both reds and whites, Comte Extra is the perfect foil for an Alsace Pinot Noir or a welcome companion to an un-oaked, or lightly-oaked, Chardonnay.
