Mimolette Isigny is made from the best milk from Normandy, which is characterised by its particularly high fat, protein and vitamin content. It gets its striking orange colour from the natural colourant annatto, which is added when the milk is rennetted. The master cheesemaker cares for, sorts and selects the wheels by hand. During at least 12 months of ripening, its paste becomes firm and somewhat crumbly and develops notes of hazelnut. After 12 months, the Mimolette is racy and spicy. Ideal cheese with a colourful fresh salad, or as a side dish to a sandwich.
