The Mimolette, also called "Boule de Lille" or "Vieux Lille" is one of the most exclusive French cheeses. It is an aged cheese, from cow's milk, hand-crafted and matured for a minimun of 12 months and in the shape of a ball. The rind of Mimolette, smooth and thin in young cheeses, hardens during the ripening process, and will form small cavities where the cheese mite, causing the dusty appearance of the crust, develops. The paste is dense, rather tough and dry, taking on a peculiar orange color achieved thanks to annatto, a natural dye extracted from the seeds of the Bixa Orellana bush. Both the flavor and the aroma of Mimolette intensify in their maturation, gaining strong acidic tones of fruit and toasted hazelnuts. An amazing cheese that captures the attention at any table.
It's served in wedges of approximately 325 - 350 grams aprox.
