Charolais, 250g


Charolais is artisanal cheese which comes from the granite plains of Charola in the region of Bourgogne, France. The subtle flavours of mixed cow's and goat's milk, the saltiness, sweetness and acidity sharpen with maturing. This cheese can be eaten young, half-matured or matured when it becomes quite strong. It comes in the shape of a barrel with concave sides.

A tubby drum-shaped cylinder – the shape was designed for farmers in the fields who could slice and place it in baguette sandwiches – with a close-textured, crumbly pate. The rind is natural and slightly dry, with patchy grey, blue and white moulds. Initially mixed with cow's milk, the cheeses today use solely goat's milk. The taste is rich and sophisticated with a fine clean, nutty flavour and relatively low acidity.
