Marechal

Size

Type: Hard
Milk: Raw cow's milk
Rennet: Animal
Location: Canton de Vaud, Switzerland

A relative newcomer next to many other Alpine cheeses, Marechal was born of the ingenuity of Swiss cheesemaker Jean-Michel Rapin in the early 90's.

Produced in the heart of Gruyere country, Marechal shares many of its characteristics: hard, pressed, cooked curd with a smooth buttery paste. To cure the rind of the newly formed cheeses, brine is rubbed in using hay cuttings and flax flowers. This lends a subtly grassy note which intensifies to a herbaceous finish. To accentuate this quality, we age wheels to around a year old.
