Surchoix cheese : what does it mean ?

It means literally : high quality, but I noticed the label is used for mature cheeses only, or am I wrong ?

Yes they are usually older cheeses, and saltier after being washed more times.

I'm informed that the crunch inside the aged cheeses isn't salt at all but if the crunch is on the outside then it is :-) I've sometimes bought the extra extra extra mature cheese by mistake...
