Chimay Grand Cru 5 lb

Special order. 2 week lead time.

Chimay Grand Cru is a semi-hard washed-rind and pressed cheese.

The rind is natural, non-colored, without preservatives, and slightly flowery. It is made from the wholesome milk of the “Chimay Country” that is collected exclusively in the best months. It has a nutty taste with a hint of bitterness. Covered with forests and pastures and crossed by numerous rivers, the countryside of Chimay has always been a livestock-rearing area, and dairy herds mean cheese.

The rind is washed with the famous Chimay beer rather than ordinary spring water. This develops an incomparable flavor that delights the nose as well as the palate. The cheese is semi-soft and has a nutty, well-finished flavor with just a hint of hops and malt. While its aroma is quite strong, the taste of the cheese itself is somewhat mild but not at all bland.
