Tête de Moine AOP

Tête de Moine AOP Classic

Tête de Moine AOP, Fromage de Bellelay is a cylindrical, smeared semi-hard cheese made from silage-free milk. The product, which is matured for at least 2.5 months, owes its strong, unique flavour to the rich grass upon which the cattle feed and is a typical product of its “terroir”. It has an exceptionally fine consistency thanks to its 800-year-old recipe.
