Looking for the most decadent of cheeses to impress your guests with this Christmas? Then look no further, as from Tuesday 12th December, supermarket Aldi will be stocking Specially Selected Exquisite Vacherin Mont d’Or for just £6.99 (350g).
This beautifully creamy cheese is 26% cheaper than Waitrose’s Badoz Vacherin Du Haut (£9.49, 350g)1 highlighting the exceptional quality and value on offer in Aldi’s Christmas range this year.
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi UK, says: “We want everyone to be able to enjoy the finer things this Christmas and are exceptionally proud of our Vacherin Mont d’Or, which has been sourced from the finest cheese makers in Switzerland - a true example of Aldi offering a luxurious product at everyday amazing low prices.”
This handcrafted cheese is made with unpasteurised milk which gives it a distinct, rich and creamy taste. Best served cooked with garlic, fresh rosemary and a dash of white wine.
Fancy some wine with your cheese? The elegant strawberry and cherry flavours of Aldi’s Aldi’s Finca La Pampa Barrel Selected Pinot Noir (£9.99, 750ml) perfectly complement this splendid cheese.
