Fromage de Chaumes
Fromage de Chaumes cheese is a washed rind and soft-ripened cheese is made using ancestral methods with pasteurised cow’s milk. Based on the Trappist style of making cheeses, Chaumes has got an aromatic soft golden rind and a pale yellow, creamy pate. The smooth, supple and rather springy texture is complemented by the rich, intense and full bodied flavour of the cheese. Its taste can be described as complex, leaving behind a smooth and hazel-nutty aftertaste.
