Morbier AOC

Made by small Fromageries in the Morbier ("small market town") region (Auvergne, France)

A surprisingly mild cheese made from raw cow's milk, which adds depth to the flavor and imparts a sweet taste. The cheese has an ivory colour, and it is a bit soft and fairly elastic. It gets immediately identified because of its black layer of tasteless ash, which separates horizontally in the middle. Rich and creamy flavour with small eyes or holes. Sometimes, the cheese leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste and has strong aroma as well.
