This is a beautiful mild cheese that melts wonderfully, making it perfect for French onion soup and cheese fondue. The flavor varies widely with age. It is often described as creamy and nutty when young, becoming with age more assertive, earthy and complex. When fully aged (five months to 2 years) it tends to have small cracks which impart a slightly grainy texture. It does not have the holes that are characteristic of many Alpine cheeses.
