Being a leader of all English farmstead Cheddars, Laguiole Vieux is produced in the southwestern region of France. The history of this cheese goes back to eleventh century. Made from raw cow's milk, its moist and grainy texture is obtained by cooking and pressing processes. During the three months maturation period, it is wrapped in cloth and also turning and rubbing is carried out to achieve its tangy flavour. It has some similarities with other farmhouse Cheddars like Cantal, Cantalet and Salers. Its buttery and piquant taste can be paired with Merlot, Moulin-à-Vent or Côtes d'Auvergne.
