There are three versions of Beaufort that are produced: Beaufort, Beaufort d'Eté (summer Beaufort) and Beaufort d'Alpage, which is made in high-mountain huts during summer. "Chalet d'Alpage" is considered to be the king of Alpine cheeses.
This raw cow's milk cheese is similar to a Gruyere with a firm, smooth texture. The summer milk (only the very best!) that goes into this classic Alpine cheese contributes grassy, floral notes as well as rich golden hay and a pleasant nuttiness. A great melting and fondue cheese!
