Cantal Vieux” – 250g


Cantal is the oldest cheese from Auvergne. Pliny the Elder even mentioned it in his writings! “Cantal” or “Fourme de Cantal” enjoys a registered designation of origin (AOC) since 1956 and a protected designation of origin (AOP) 1996.
This large, dry-rind cheese is exclusively made with whole cow’s milk. Its paste is uncooked and has the specificity of being pressed twice. The curds are crushed between the two pressings and salted in the mass, giving this cheese a grainy, crumbly texture.The maturation of Cantal requires at least thirty days for a “Cantal jeune” and can be continued for over eight months for a “Cantal vieux”. For intermediary maturation periods, the Cantal is referred to as “entre-deux” (with a minimum of ninety day’s maturation).The rind of Cantal bears a rectangular label, of a green color for the Cantal made with raw milk and of a brown color for the Cantal made with pasteurized milk.

Dear customers, many of you have been asking us what would happen in the coming weeks: Our activity remains unchanged and we will keep bringing you nice and responsible products every week delivered to your door step. However, we are experiencing some difficulties with flights cancellation or delay so you might have to wait a bit longer to receive your order if such event would happen in the coming weeks ;-) Of course, we will do our best to update you if any change would arise in the delivery schedule. In April, NO MORE DELIVERIES ON FRIDAY, only on SATURDAY afternoon.  We thank you for your comprehension and we rely on your support and patience if those exceptional situations would occur. To be 100% transparent, our prices has been a little bit modified due to the high increase of the transportation cost between France to Hong Kong and high local product demand in France.

Don't hesitate to contact us to see if we have some products in stock if you are out of our regular order schedule!

Thank you for your support and understanding in this complicated time.
