Mountain Man - L'Artisan Cheese


This washed-rind cows milk cheese from French cheesemaker Matthieu Mégard at L'Artisan, Giraiwurung country, south-western Victoria is perfect for making Tartiflette. 

L'Artisan Mountain Man is a washed rind cheese created by cheesemaker Matthieu Megard from a recipe that originates from the Reblochon tradition in the French Alps where he grew up. Made out of pasteurised milk, it is surprisingly complex in taste and soft in texture. As well as a delicious cheese on its own, it can be used a melting cheese on top of any potato-based dish, particularly Tartiflette. The Mountain Man has a slightly pungent yet round and complex taste with a sweet, milky finish.

A little history about L'Artisan Cheese

L’Artisan Cheese started making unique, handmade organic cheeses in the rich dairy region of Timboon in south-western Victoria. In 2020, they relocated their cheese-making facility to Mortlake, Giraiwurung country. Third generation cheesemaker Matthieu Megard adapts traditional French recipes to the local Victorian environment.

The cheeses are full of character with strong tastes and distinct personalities, bringing all the goodness of local organic grass-fed milk provided by John Smith’s farm of the Organic Dairy Farmers of Australia co-operative. As such, it’s produced in an environmentally and socially responsible manner through soil regeneration, water conservation and animal welfare. The farm does not use any synthetic or artificial pesticides, herbicides or GMOs, whilst also supporting biodiversity through the cultivation of a variety of grasses - a great thing for the taste of cheese.
