Mimolette Extra vieille

Mimolette or Boule de Lille has it used to be known is a hard cheese made from pasteurised cows milk, coloured with annetto, with hazelnut flavour. Produced in the North of France, our Mimolette is matured for 18months giving the cheese a very brittle texture and wonderful flavour.
The origins of the cheese goes back to 1675 whilst France was at war with Flanders, King Louis XIV ordered a cheese to replace the very popular Edam. The producers encourage the development of cheese mites on the rind to dry out the cheese even more. Mimolette is very versatile, use it as an aperitif, shaved on soups or salads, served on the board.
