About Mimolette

Mimolette is a firm cow cheese from Flanders in Northern France.

Mimolette is cooked and pressed in a shape of a cannonball of 2kg (4.5 pounds).

The texture is fudge-like and dense.

The taste has nuttiness and butterscotch tones.

Being a hard cheese, Mimolette matches both medium and full-bodied red wines because they share the intensity.

Another way to go is matching the saltiness of this hard cheese with the sweetness of a Vintage Port or of your favourite off-dry to sweet wine.

Rustic wines such Carignan, French Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon match the earthiness of Mimolette.

Did You Know?

The distintive deep orange color comes from a vegetable pigment called "annatto", originating in South America.

Annatto or Roucou is extracted from the seeds of the Achiote tree and was used by indigenous as body paint, dye, lipstick as well as spice in food.
