Mimolette is a semi-firm, pasteurized, pressed, aged, cow's milk cheese from France. This specific Mimolette is aged for 6 months, supplying a slightly harder texture and slightly more nutty taste than its counterparts that are aged for a shorter time. It has a strong, sharp but mild, fruity and nutty flavor with slight caramel notes. It has a bright, orange interior. This cheese is also known under the name of "Boule de Lille". The method of production of Mimolette is similar to the Dutch cheese Edam, so much so that it has been called the "French Edam". Can be grated on top of foods or served as a snack with beer. This Mimolette is produced by Isigny. Cut cheese, 7 oz. wedge.
