CANTAL

 

Cantal : Jeune, Entre-deux, Vieux ?

A minimum of one month of maturing time is necessary for the cheese to be considered Cantal.

Cantal Jeune: aged 1 to 2 months, has a milky taste, very soft, sometimes with a hint of hazelnut or vanilla

Cantal Entre-Deux: aged 3 to 6 months, has a stronger character

Cantal Vieux: aged beyond 6 months, has almost an animal aroma which is peppery and spicy

Its texture: Soft to firm depending on how long it is aged

Its taste:

Its flavor: Milky aroma and nutty flavor

It is the grandfather of all cheese, and it was born in the Cantal, in Auvergne, more than 2,000 years ago. This is a region with rich pastures which produces high quality milk.

In his eleventh book of Natural History, Pline the Elder says, "The cheese of the land of Arvernes and Gevaudan are very popular in Rome for their good quality." This could lead us to assume that the cheese he refers to is an ancestor of our excellent fourmes of Auvergne.
