French Cheese Cantalet Aged 3 Months AOC 19-22 lb.
Cantalet, aged 3 months - cow's milk semi-hard AOC cheese - 19-22 lb/8.6-10 kg, France.
Over the years its reputation has appealed to more and more cheese lovers. In 1980 this remarkable cheese was accepted into the prestigious AOC family. Auvergne is a region known for a thousand volcanoes; blessed by mountain storms and summer sun, and the pasture lands are extremely fertile. Cantalet cheese captures all the richness of these pasture lands.
Texture: The form of the cheese is massive and dumpy, with a soft yellow interior. When kneaded, the pate tends to melt in the hand. The pate is firm and homogeneous, with a thick smooth, dry, greyish/brown rind. It smells of the rich pasture lands.
Taste: A well-ripened Cantal has a vigorous taste, whereas a young cheese has the sweetness of raw milk.
Appropriate wines: Saint Pourcain, white wine.
