Description

This soft cow’s milk cheese from France can be traced back to the Middle Ages. If made in Alsace it is simply called Munster, but if produced on the other side of the Vosges Mountains in Lorraine, the cheese is known as Munster Gerome. It has a creamy,  smooth texture with a savoury, tangy flavour and a strong aroma.

 

Pairing Recommendations

Munster tastes well with wines such as Alsace's Gewürztraminer or Pinot Noir, but also full bodied red wines such as Côte-Rotie or Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
