The original shape of the Taupinette is due to the imagination of the cheese makers from the Poitou-Charentes region. No doubt cheese experts will be reminded of the Gaperon that has a similar shape, but from another region the Auvergne.
In the year's 2001 “Concours General Agricole” competition the gustative qualities of the Taupinette were recognized with a gold medal.
The taste is refined and the Taupinette melts in the mouth.
The rind is a natural mould on charcoal powder, the pate is soft, uncooked and unpressed.
The cheese is made with highly concentrated milk, which gives the pate a dense pure white smooth texture.
White wine: Sancerre (Sauvignon grapes)
