Charolais PDO


The Charolais comes from the granite plains around the Charolles region of Bourgogne, near the Beaujolais vineyards, from which it gets its name. Its shape is a barrel with concave sides. It can be eaten fresh, slightly dried (demi sec) or very dry.


Its artisan production varies greatly from farm to farm. radition calls for the Charolais to be made with goat’s milk.


The richness of these plains produces a subtle savour of milk, and the saltiness and sweetness of its aroma is a pleasure to the palate. In this latter state it is in the category of strong cheeses. It is also greatly appreciated in the dry state.


In the course of the first two weeks of maturing, its rind turns a blue/grey shade and is covered with blue/ white mould.
