Emmentaler AOP extra 14 month matured
Hard cheese matured for 14 months in a humid cave, strong and spicy with the characteristic sweetish nutty flavour.
Ideal as a dessert cheese with a complex white or red wine.
The Emmentaler is overly complex and subtle in taste and it’s difficult to explain this to the consumer. And I decided not to offer any Emmental.
But customers kept on asking me and finally I decided to create a special Emmentaler. An Emmentaler in the great tradition of raw milk cheese, with the nutty, mild taste matured in a humid cellar. This Emmentaler must come from the canton of Bern and I started looking, but I could not find any cheese that met my expectations.
Shortly before I gave up, I found a dairy that produced an unbelievably beautiful and perfect Emmentaler AOP.
Now I had to find a cellar in the canton of Bern, it should be a humid and relatively warm cellar. After a long search I found the ideal cellar and after 14 months the cheese was perfect. A real Emmentaler AOP with a dark rind, strong and extraordinarily complex in taste. It has the flavour of a mountain cheese with the typical nutty sweetness of the Emmentaler.
