Saint Vernier is made in the factory of Jean Perrin & Fils in the Jura area of the Franche-Comté in the east of France. Saint Vernier is washed with a solution made with a locally produced Savagnin wine during the early stages of maturation. After the washing stage, the rind is allowed to develop and bloom, finishing with a wonderful soft delicate faint orange rind. The washing also imparts a mild fruity note in an otherwise lactic, yeasty and earthy flavour profile. Texturally soft in the mouth, the cheese can also become runny if aged a little too long. As with all high quality French washed rind cheese, pungency can be a little overbearing on well-aged examples, a much milder experience can be expected on a young cheese.
