features

It is a true cow’s milk roquefort , whose rustic characteristic comes from its prolonged refining that takes place in the calcareous caves of Causses, especially those on the cliffs of the Gorges du Tarn .

Manufacturing

It is a cheese made from cow’s milk, with green paste , and an average weight of 2.5 kg. Its tuning area is concentrated in some cantons of the Aveyron : Campagnac , Cornus , Millau , Peyreleau and Saint-Affrique .

Tasting

Its optimal tasting period runs from May to September, after refining for 10 to 12 weeks; but it is an excellent cheese at any time of the year.

Production

983 tons in 2003, of which 100% are coagulated milk.
