This week on Alpine Saturday: Grand Cru Surchoix by Emmi Roth USA presented by ACS CCP® Pat Polowsky:
This cheese was declared the World Champion at the 2016 World Championship Cheese Contest.
Milk type: cow
Age: 9 months+
The flavor of Grand Cru Surchoix is tailored more towards the American palate: sweeter and more fruity, less brothy and pungent as other Alpine washed-rind cheeses.
