When cheeses are in season

Not everyone realises just how seasonal cheese is. There are obvious examples such as goats' cheeses which are at their best in the spring and Vacherin Mont D'or which is only available from October to March (so perfect right now) but there are many other cheeses which I guess most of us have no idea about when they're at their peak.

I've just come across a really useful chart on a website called elegusto, an on-line retailer of wine and cheese. Whether it's currently trading or not, I'm not sure. Some of the recent updates seem to have been made in 2007 but this information is certainly most useful.
