Made in Alsace, Munster is rubbed by hand with a solution of rock salt and water, preventing the appearance of mould and giving the cheese, a slick and shiny, brick-coloured rind. Its chief characteristics are the pungent smell, and the soft smooth body, with the consistency of melting chocolate. Protected by an Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC).
This rich cheese pairs very well with Alsace wines such as Gewurztraminer, Riesling or Pinot Gris.
