French Cheese Chaource AOC 8.8 oz.

Chaource - cow's milk uncooked, unpressed soft AOC cheese with a white mold - 8.8 oz/250 gr, France.
Not all cheeses need long periods of maturing. Chaource is a good example. Originally it was sold only fresh or demi-sec (slightly dry). Today people prefer it more matured which gives it a round appearance. It belongs to the white pate family, its strong acidity prevents the heart of the cheese from maturing. It was accepted into the AOC family in 1977.
