Chabichou du Poitou is manufactured on a small area in the Poitou, Berry and Perigord regions of France. Made with whole unpasteurized fresh goat’s milk. Produced only by a few farmsteads, ladled by hand, the cheese comes in the shape of a truncated cylinder called "bonde", approximately 6 cm in height and 5 to 6 cm in diameter. After 10 days of maturing, Chabichou gets coated with a thin layer of grey-blue islets. Five to six weeks are needed to acquire an intense savory, piquant and nutty aroma and flavor. Chabichou develops its characteristic, edible wrinkled rind dotted with occasional grey patches. Cut the cheese and it reveals a firm, creamy “bright white” interior but not before unwinding a thin buttery layer. Even though it smells typically “goaty”, the flavors are sweet with a bit of salty and tangy edge at the end. The cheese won Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) in 1990. 5.3oz
