Made from the milk of Salers cows that feed on rich, volcanic pastures. AOC awarded, St. Nectaire fremier takes six to eight weeks to mature on rye straw mats, imparting a peculiar pungent smell to the cheese. When properly aged, it has a grayish-purple washed rind, dotted with white, yellow and red molds. The creamy, supple, silky textured paste melts in the mouth to reveal flavors of nuts, hay, cellars and mushroom.

How We Ship
Gourmet & More Cut Process
Every day, the expert cheese cutters at Gourmet & More select the perfect wheels from our caves and cut your cheese to order. Each order is cut inside of our cheese room. Cutting cheese at Gourmet & More is an art, not a science, so while your piece may be slightly over or slightly under what you ordered, you can rest assured that it was cut just for you.
Your cheese is wrapped in our specially-produced cheese paper. The paper is lined with a breathable layer to allow the cheese to continue maturing while en route to your door. The breathable paper prevents the cheese from being suffocated, but also prevents it from drying out.
State of the Art Packaging
Every order is packed in a thermal lined box with reusable food-friendly gel packs. The goal is for the cheese to arrive to you cool to cold. Remember, cheese cannot be frozen.
Shipping Fresh to Your Doorstep
Depending on the contents of your order and the destination of your shipment, you'll be offered One Day or Ground shipping (San Francisco Bay Area) at checkout.
