La Taupiniere

La Taupiniere is a highly aromatic unpasteurised goat's milk cheese invented by Gilles Jousseaume in 1973 at his farm in the Poitou-Charentes region of south-western France.

Dome shaped and sheathed in a natural blue-grey mould, La Taupiniere is prepared from the milk of goats fed on fresh grass and aged in cellars, resulting in a rich flavour and an intense hazelnut aroma.

Beneath the mouldy exterior, the cheese exposes a snow white paste that is creamy, smooth and tangy to taste. A many times gold medal winner, La Taupiniere releases a wonderful sweetness in the mouth.
