Morbier is a French semi-soft cow’s milk cheese with a moist, leathery brown to grey rind. The rind is inedible. The cheese has a 2-layer interior separated by a thin layer of ash which separates the morning milk from the evening milk. The flavor is nutty with a nuance of fresh hay. The pungent cheese goes well with fruit. When selecting a wine try at light, fruity red such as cru Beaujolais.
Look for Morbier at a good cheese shop. Whole Foods Markets may have it in stock. Look for a good French brand which is marked lait cru (raw milk). You can purchase it online at several stellar sellers at Amazon.com: French Morbier
