Rocamadour cheese belongs to a family of goat cheeses called Cabecous. It is produced in the regions of Perigord and Quercy, and the name is derived from the village of Rocamadour in the department of the Lot. Since 1996, it’s designated with AOC certification. The cheese takes about 12 -15 days to attain full maturity, but it can be ripened furthermore for several months to make it a bit stronger. It appears white, ivory cream with velvety skin. Because of a nutty flavour, it tastes great when consumed on hot toast or in salads. After maturation for months, it develops a more intense flavour, and pairs well with Red Wine. This cheese is also Known as Cabécou de Rocamadour, or Cabécou de Gramat.

This cheese is quite creamy (if kept out of the fridge for a couple of hours), it has some prominent earthy notes and is not too strikingly strong. Overall, a great cheese if you like "nutty" cheeses.
