Chaource is a soft cheese made from cow’s milk in the village of Chaoruce, France. This cylindrical shaped cheese has a soft-ripened, creamy and a little bit crumbly, non-elastic texture. Surrounded by a white velvety rind, it's ageing process lasts between 2 weeks to 2 months. Many people like to eat young Chaource, when its rind is hardly formed whereas others eat after it attains full maturation. During its ageing time, the cheese has a bit salty, buttery and milky taste. Together with 25% fat, it also contains animal rennet. It goes well with Champagne / Pommard ou Mercurey.

Fromage au lait de vache pasteurisé, pâte fine, saveur douce et fruité. Fort en bouche, une réelle saveur fruitée.
