Originally from the Champagne region, Chaource is often referred as the “Queen of Cheese” as it was the favourite cheese of the French Royalty in the 19th century.
It is a soft cheese with a creamy and buttery texture exclusively made with whole cow’s milk. Refined for 2 to 4 weeks, it is generally eaten young.

Sweet and slightly salty in flavour, its melting paste offers hints of cream, mushroom, and hazelnut.

It can be eaten spread on a crusty baguette or toast, with a glass of white wine or Champagne to balance the fattiness of the cheese!

Should be stored in the refrigerator wrapped in parchment paper.

  1. Paul C

    I love this cheese. As other reviews have said, it is quite salty, but also has a really nice flavourful paste, which is increasing melty as it matures and at room temperature. The saltiness is complemented quite well by a douceur such as the Cheeseclub Quince jelly with orange. Definitely a repeat buy for me.

    To me, it’s a bit too salty. But it’s just to my palette.

    Savory cheese, melt fast
