There is a multitude of goat’s milk cheeses: white or ashen, round, cylindrical, pyramidal, in the shape of a log… They have different textures and tastes depending on the maturing period.
Fresh from the producers, they are drained then wisely aligned on racks. Preserved for at least 15 days for the youngest ones until several months for the most matured. At the same time, a flora made up of yeasts and moulds (white, blue, orange…) will gradually develop on their surface.
Soft cheeses with a flowery rind
The cheeses of this family go through a more delicate maturing process. These cheeses have a white, fluffy rind and are soft. They are attributed scents of mushroom, yeast, moss or moist soil. Their flavour is reminiscent of mushroom, hazelnut and butter aromas…
Soft cheeses with washed rind
These cheeses are renowned for their strong odour, yet with very different and subtle tastes. They are characterised by a rind that varies in colour, from orange-yellow to brown, passing through ochres and reds while the dough keeps an ivory tone. These are regularly washed to activate fermentation: either in brine or with alcohols (Marc de Bourgogne, beer, white wines…) and some with secret recipes transmitted through the elders.
Cooked and uncooked pressed dough cheeses
Made from cow’s, goat’s or sheep’s milk, they come in the form of tommes or wheels, with a multitude of textures, all mainly from the Alpine pastures. Maturing can vary from a few weeks to several years. Every week, these cheeses are turned and brushed manually, so that the acarids do their work! Then comes the magic of flavours: spicy, woody, cellar notes, fresh grass, wood, mushrooms, honey, gentian, fruit, cream…. A palette of colours then appears on the rind depending on the terroir: from brown, grey through yellow and orange… these exceptional cheeses are rare pieces to offer such a variety of colours and just as many variations of typical and authentic flavours.
