Produced by the Neuvéglise dairy cooperative in the Cantal, this cheese has been selected and matured by Marcel Charrade, a maturer specialising in cheeses from the Massif Central.

Young Cantal

Matured for 1 to 2 months, Cantal Jeune thus keeps a pleasant taste of milk and butter. Its thin rind, white or even grey in colour, contains a firm and supple paste, from ivory to pale yellow in colour.

By continuing the maturing process, we obtain first the cantal entre-deux and then the old cantal.

Cantal, an AOP cheese from the Massif Central

Cantal is an uncooked pressed paste made from cow's milk in the form of an oven. For each ovenme of about 40 kilos, 400 litres of milk are needed. Since 1956 it has had an Appellation d'Origine Protégée (AOP) which guarantees its traditional method of production and its constant quality.

Its production area (7200 km²) is centred on the Cantal, the department from which it takes its name, but also extends to a few neighbouring communes in the Puy-de-Dôme, Aveyron, Corrèze and Haute-Loire. This extensive breeding ground offers its rich pasture resources and allows the cheese to be made with milk anchored in its terroir.

The fourme de Cantal has the cylindrical shape typical of Auvergne cheeses. Its paste, firm and uncooked, is pressed twice, with crushing of the curd between the two presses and salting in the mass.

The paste has an ivory colour when removed from the mould (young maturing), to gradually become dark yellow. Initially supple, it can be slightly crumbly for the most mature. The rind gradually thickens, going from a grey-white to golden, then brown. It can be strewn with ochre to brown buds.

Sometimes tart at the beginning of the maturing process, its taste intensifies until it becomes fruity and persistent.
