A slightly younger version of vintage mimolette, aged minimum 12 months, hard Cheese from the north of France, coloured with annatto with natural rind with mites. Every Mimolette is individually wrapped to keep the mites from spreading to other cheeses. It was created in the XVII Century as a native French alternative to the then very popular Edam. While semi-soft when young, “mi-molle” in French - hence the name, Mimolette very much enjoyed by amateur when older, dryer, harder, tastier. 14 to 16 months old mimolette gives a good yolky palette, ideal to pair along with whisky!
Wine Pairing: Goes well with Rhone Valley collection: Cote Rotie: Brune et Blonde, E.Guigal 2004, Grenache and Shiraz grapes varieties, or a lighter bordeaux with Merlot bases red wine is ideal.
