Its characteristics

Langres was declared CDO (Certified Designation of Origin) in 1991 then PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) in 2012. The Langres AOP Germain is a cheese made from cow’s milk with a soft centre and a washed rind. The cheese is matured according to a ver y demanding method of successive washings which gives it a beautiful orange colour. It's a cheese that has a pungent, intense and characteristic aroma which gives way to a fairly mild taste. The Langres AOP Germain is the leading Langres cheese in the world.

Did you know ?

Langres was originally made at the actual farms using warm cow’s milk poured into terra cotta moulds called “fromottes”. Once flipped, the cheese had to dry on lime tree leaves and then be matured on oat straw. This has been an “Appellation d’Origine Protégée” (Protected Designation of Origin) cheese since 2009, from the plateau where the town of Langres is located.

The quality of the Langres cheese is obvious when you consider all its national and international awards (WCA, CGA, Mondial du Fromage...).

Le Langres is produced in the Champagne region
