Clothbound Cheddar - Jasper Hill

$ 12.00


A quantity of "1" is an 6 ounce wedge of perfectly aged Cabot Clothbound Cheddar. This cheese is made from pasteurized cow's milk.

IN 2003, Cabot Creamery asked Jasper Hill Farms to age a special batch of cheddar, sparking a revolutionary collaboration. After more than a decade the cheese has developed into the cornerstone of the Jasper Hill collection. After it comes to the Cellars, the young cheese is coated in lard and wrapped in an additional layer of cloth. The cheeses ripen in a specially calibrated vault in Jasper Hill Farm's Cellars, where the wheels are constantly brushed, turned, and monitored for quality.

SENSORY NOTES  - Clothbound is an approachable but complex natural-rind, bandaged cheddar with a crumbly texture and nutty aroma. The flavor is deeply savory and slightly tangy with caramel sweetness to the finish.

PAIRING AND SERVICE  - Clothbound has a signature tang and caramel nuttiness with a rustic crystalline texture that becomes creamy on the palate. This savory-sweet balance of flavor makes a perfect match for charcuterie, apple jelly, or a rich chestnut honey. Pair with an off-dry sparkling apple cider, hoppy ale, or an oaked Cabernet Sauvignon. Clothbound is an award winning cheese, including American Cheese Society's 2006 Best in Show.
