Region of origin: Auvergne

Saint-Nectaire has been produced in the volcanic mountains of Monts-Dore in northern Auvergne for centuries. The grazing meadows are rich in phosphorus, potassium and magnesium, all minerals that are found in high concentration in the milk of the Salers cows that is used to make this AOC- and AOP-awarded cheese.

This makes for a cheese that is rich and creamy in texture and complex on the palate. As it is matured on rye straw mats, the rind has a typical earthy aroma. Saint-Nectaire melts in the mouth with flavors of nuts, mushrooms and cellars, though the brine, salt and acidity flavors are a direct result of the volcanic pastures.

It goes well with fruit and raw vegetables, olives, bead and salami — perfect for any apértif. It’s also great for cooking, so try it melted over roasted potatoes or in a quiche.
