This is what's inside: Augusta's box in December 2020

Das ist drin: Augustas Box im Dezember 2020 - Augustas Box

This cheese is in it

1. Etivaz
Raw cow milk
Region: Vaud Alps
This exceptional cheese is still cooked over wood fires in the mountain pastures of the Swiss Alps. A unique taste with small salt crystals and fruity notes, paired with the Chignin Bergeron wine!

2. Onetics
Raw milk from sheep and goats
Region: Basque Country
This delicious cheese has a delicate, fruity and very elegant aroma. He was awarded the international cheese prize 2019. You can enjoy it with your crémant.

3. Gouda with truffles
Pasteurized cow's milk
Origin: Holland
We French call Holland the other country of cheese. Here you will discover a creamy dough with lovely truffle notes. This cheese definitely belongs on the cheese platters at Christmas.

4. Camembert Calvados (large box only)
Raw cow milk
Region: Haut de France
Two typically French products in one. This cheese is washed every day with Calvados, giving it a strong flavor yet light texture. With the Crémant it will reveal itself better and less strongly.

5. Roquefort (large box only)
Raw milk from sheep
Region: Aveyron
A monument to French cheese. Unparalleled melt and strength that comes from the plateaus. If you have a port or sweet wine at home, try it with the cheese. A gastronomic miracle!

6. Timanoix (large box only)
Pasteurized cow's milk
Region: Morbihan
A cheese from our friend Bernard Mure Ravaud (best cheese maker in the world). The monks of Timadeuc Abbey created the processed cheese with a lovely nutty note. Both wines in your box will go perfectly with it.

This wine is included

Crémant de Bourgogne (in every box)
Region: Burgundy
Grapes: Chardonnay
Winemaker: Cave de Bailly
We won't celebrate Christmas without the bubbles. These are fine, dry and fruity. The Chardonnay reveals all its fruit here. It's about finesse, not fullness, with a very nice minerality.

Chignin bergeron (only in the large box)
Region: Savoie
Grapes: Rousanne
Winemaker: Les Rocailles
This mountain wine is of great finesse. It has lovely fruity and caramel notes, the minerality comes in the finish to balance it all out. An ideal wine for cheese. Both allow each other to develop.

There was this pâté

Pâté basque à la cérise (only if ordered)
100% pork
This pâté from the Basque Country is made according to an original recipe. It combines the taste of a traditional pie with the slightly sour taste of the cherry: a surprising result that will delight your guests.

We wish you a lot of fun and bon appetite with your box :)

Silvia and your team from Augustas Box

Joyeux Noël!
