Its characteristics

Chaource was granted CDO in 1970 then PDO in 1996. The Chaource AOP Germain is a soft-ripened cheese with a bloomy rind. Its manufacturing process requires it to be exclusively made with cow’s milk. Under its velvety white rind, Chaource reveals a firm, deliciously delicate and soft centre with mild, fresh and fruity flavours, recognisable by its aromas of cream and fresh mushrooms.
