Mont d'Or

A unique flavour and a traditional production

Speciality of Haut-Doubs, the cheese is produced from 15 August to mid-March. Our Mont d’Or Montagnon is one of the last to be traditionally-made.

It can be eaten on tray or warm, oven-backed and topped with Jura wine.

Each year, our Mont d’Or is rewarded for its quality and its unique taste :

An Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée OR AOC is only applies when the product qualities result from a land and traditional producing conditions. The AOC cheeses have a European recognition and a new denomination : PDO or Protected Designation of Origin.


AOP is an official certification label of origin and quality. This logo is easily recognized thanks to its red and gold colors. It can only be granted by public authorities and to groups of producers gathered in a federative structure: Organisme de Défense et de Gestion (Defence and Management Organisation).

The Protected Designation of Origin has been historically created to fight against fraud (law of 1905). Then the label became Controlled Designation of Origin in 1935 and was open to  all agricultural and food products in 1990.

Since May, 1, 2009 the European logo PDO has been mandatory for European food products of which production, processing and development are made in a defined geographical area  according to  a recognised know-how and specifications. Only wines can remain under the label AOC -Controlled designation of origin (decree EU 01/01/2012)

Associations, work councils or cheese lovers, take advantage of direct selling to our chalet.
