BONDE EN GATINE

POITOU-CHARENTES

UNPASTEURISED

TRADITIONAL RENNET

A bonde is an old fashioned cork, traditionally used to seal barrels of wine, which accounts for this cheese's unique drum shape and subsequent naming. Ash-coated with a wrinkled rind, the interior pate is deliciously smooth and rich, bursting with a light, fruity, and earthy tang. With proper maturing in humid cellar, the interior breaks down gorgeously under the rind, creating a dual texture that is unmatched by other cheeses of the region.
