Chaumes 200g Individual Cheese

When a group of Producers in the Jurancon produced a new cheese in 1971, little did they know how successful it would become. Inspired by the Trappist cheeses of bygone days, some liken it to a much milder, and more supple Epoisses. Its distinctive too... with striking tangarine orange rind, and thin paper cover. With sides bulging, it looks ready to burst! Its rich and creamy, almost nutty and the aroma and taste much milder than youd expect. A great starting point for cheese lovers not yet ready to face the onslaught of an Epoisses or Stinking Bishop.

Accompany with some of our fresh crusty bread or Cheese Biscuits.

What to drink with Chaumes; Perry, Louis Latour Valmoissine Pinot Noir

A classic cow’s milk cheese hailing from the South West of France. This cheese literally translates as "stubble” and was inspired by the traditional Trappist cheeses of yesteryear. The distinctive golden yellow rind hides the pale creamy paste which belies the full bodied rich flavour. This cheese will become a deeper orange over time with the rind becoming sticker and more pungent. The rind is created by a regime of washing and brushing the cheese over a 2-3 week period by the cheese makers in carefully controlled temperature and humidity rooms.

Texture: Soft and springy with a smooth creaminess similar to Port Salute.
The interior becomes creamier and softer with less pronounced ‘eyes’ (holes) as it ages. Rind is slightly gritty, which becomes less so with age as it breaks down.

Flavour: When young fruitiness is balanced by a hint of herbal bitterness such as endive/chicory. The rind has hint of smokiness. As it ages the flvours become more pronounced. There is a hint of pine resin, nuts, medicinal herbs and a sweetness which shines through from the now soft spongy paste.
