Description

This small natural rind cheese is made with raw cow’s milk. It carries the name of its native town located in the Vercors area of Isère among walnut orchards that produce the famous Grenoble A.O.C. walnuts. The first traces of Saint Marcellin cheese go back to the 15th century. At the time, it was exclusively made from goat’s milk.

Produced in:

France

The Cheese Merchant says

Louis XI is said to have discovered it during a convalescence near Vercors after having a hunting accident there; during his stay, lumberjacks were said to have shared this local cheese with him. The king would later introduce Saint Marcellin to the royal table. Beginning in the 18th century, goat breeding gradually lessened and cow breeding increased, and Saint Marcellin became a mixed-milk cheese before becoming a cow’s milk cheese. The rind is very thin, with a light whitish down and sometimes a few blue marks. Its creamy coloured paste reveals no holes.
