Lincet Chaource 250g

Made with cow's milk, this traditional, creamery, soft cheese can be eaten both matured and young. When eaten young, it's interior is grainy and coarse rather than smooth. The smell of this cheese is not unlike mushrooms and while the rind is bitter, the interior is rather piquant and sharp.

Chaource History ... Chaource takes its name from the market town of Chaource, thirty kilometres south of Troyes, and it has been made since the 14th century. It is said that Marguerite de Bourgogne demanded it at her table and that Charles le Bel took great pleasure in tasting it when travelling through the region. Local farmers took their cheese to the great international Champagne fairs in Troyes, earning them a much needed income.The paste has a delicate nutty flavour and a creamy texture which melts in the mouth, and a white fluffy coat. The cheese becomes very creamy, almost liquid as it ages.  

The best cheeses are made from April to May when the new grass is emerging but good cheese can still be produced throughout the year. Chaource gained its A.O.C. status on 19th August 1970. It is made from unpasteurised cows' milk. Our Chaource is hand ladled the traditional way which preserves its light and delicate curd It is generally matured from 2 weeks to 1 month but can be kept for upto two months in humid cellars. Each cheese has a fat content of 50%.

The cheese arrived on time and was still cool because of the excellent packaging. The cheese was not quite ripe which is perfect. Well done.
