Fruitières Gillois is nestled in the Natural Park of Haut-Jura, just next to the Switzerland border. The cows graze on a pasture full of various flora, most notably wild cumin. Instead of the traditional milking parlor, the dairymen at Gillois go out to the pasture to milk the cows. Once the cheese is formed, and approved by master cheesemaker Benoît Sigonney, it gets sent off to Rivoire Jacquemin. The wheels are aged for around 6-10 months, but the determining factor is flavor; they strive for notes of brioche, butter and hazelnut.
