Gaugry, Mons Fromager & Affineur



Soumaintrain is a farmhouse (fermier) French cheese made with raw cow’s milk in the Burgundy region of France. The soft, uncooked, and un-pressed paste has a distinct pungent yet sweet and creamy flavour resulting from numerous washings with a solution of brine and Marc de Bourgogne. The quantity of Marc de Bourgogne is increased during the maturation period until the cheese develops an excellent orange coloured, aromatic and sticky rind.

Usually eaten young, Soumaintrain exposes a mild, white paste with a close and fine texture when cut. As it ages six to eight weeks, the flavours become ripe, divulging sweet, salty and creamy milk notes. The cheese tastes excellent with Chablis, Rose, Petite Sirah and of course Marc de Bourgogne.

Uses & Pairings


A cheese that needs to be enjoyed alongside nice crackers. Look for those with added flavors like rosemary or even truffles. The combination will be rich and filling.


We love to eat this cheese alongside a nice IPA. The acidity and bitterness of the beer will balance deep umami and savory flavors of the cheese.
