Chabichou du Poitou

Goat cheese from poitou, sweet and delicate taste

 

The Poitou-Charentes region is the cradle of the goat cheese producers.

 

The victory of Charles Martel over the Sarrasins at Poitiers in 732 created a rebirth of goat cheeses ( chebli in Arabic, from which comes Chabichou ) which has made Poitou famous.

 

The Chabichou was awarded the AOC in 1990.

 

The cheese has sweet and delicate taste, touched by a faintly acidic and salty flavour.

The rind is thin with white, yellow and blue mould. The pate is firm and should keep a certain elasticity, but after a long period of maturing the pate will become crumbly.
