What makes Reblochon so special?
It is made from whole, unpasteurised milk and must meet rigorous standards to earn the coveted PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) recognition.
It is mountain cheese with a soft washed-rind and smear ripened mountain cheese. A ripe cheese may weigh between 450-500g. It is known for its lasting nutty taste.
Two types of Reblochon are produced: Reblochon Fermier (green tag) made on the farms in the Thônes valley area and Reblochon Fruitier (red tag) made in the co-ops or factories in Savoie.
It is best enjoyed melted with potatoes, cold, dry and grilled meats, and sausages.
