Discover the secret behind the dark line
Morbier PDO has a soft rind and a smooth and creamy texture marked with small holes, and a strongly pronounced taste characterised by a light creamy, buttery smell. This beautiful regional cheese is a true revelation for the palate. Morbier possesses a distinctive dark line running through its centre, which does not appear by accident. In the past during the winter the milk collection was low and so the mountain dwellers required two separate collections to make the cheese.
The cheese made from the morning milk was covered in a layer of ash, which provided a natural layer of protection, and then the curds from the evening collection were added on top of the ash. Today the ashes are plant-based, although the care that goes into the production of the cheese remains unchanged.
