Montboisse, cows milk, Morbier style cheese has a line of wine lees running down the center representing the 19th century tradition of separating milk from the morning and afternoon milking. It has a mild gentle flavor with a slightly nutty finish.. Schallenberg Reserve is produced with fresh whole milk. And depending on how high the fat content is according to the season Hansruedi (cheese maker) adds cream to the milk. You get a taste of cauliflower with vanilla and toasted nuts Aged 13-14 months.
