Petit Sapin

Cheese Type

Petit Sapin is a soft ripened cheese from the Jura in the Franche-Comté region of France. This area is well known for Vacherin Mont d’Or, a raw milk cheese of the same style.

Petit Sapin translates as “little fir tree” in French. The cheeses are bound in a band of spruce bark that is used to maintain the shape of the cheese while it ripens in its own little box.  

The bark looks spectacular and imparts an earthy, forest floor flavour. The ivory interior has a lusciously creamy texture and a mild and slightly salty flavour with the added complexity from the bark.
