Grataron d'Arêches is produced by two young couples Gisele & Thierry Bochet and Bérengère & Jean Yves Rochaix in the Ferme de Monsieur Seguin situated at the heart of the Beaufortain region between Beaufort and the village of Arêches. It’s a soft cheese made from unpasteurised milk of goats, which eat the mountain pastures and rocky outcrops. Therefore, the quality of milk is of very high quality, and in return the company produces the rich cheese.
The cheese has smooth texture with a few small holes. In 1-2 months, it matures with a orangey-brown brine washed rind. With a white creamy interior, it appears great, and tastes similar to a Tomme Cheese. It pairs well with White Wine.
