UNPASTEURISED

TRADITIONAL RENNET

A soft disc with a natural wrinkled rind. Meaning 'spicy' in the Occitan language, the cheese undergoes a remarkable change as it matures; when young the cheese has a plump and unmarred white appearance, but after several weeks of careful maturing it will lose approximately half of its weight, deepen to a golden colour, and develop earthy moulds. The flavours, once light and gentle, will become concentrated and sharp, living up to its Occitan translation. Best season is July and August.
