Abbaye de Citeaux

Abbaye de Citeaux - cheese - fromage EUR Disponible

Although the Abbey of St Nicolas des Citeaux dates back some 900 years, production of this fermier cheese began as recently as 1925. It is as soft to the eye as it is to the palate, and rather milder than the majority of washed-rind cheeses. Most of the cheeses are eaten locally.
