Brebirousse d'Argental

Brebirousse d'Argental

Cheese Type

Fromagerie Guilloteau is located in the small town of Pélussin in the Rhône-Alpes region. The company pioneered the use of ultra-filtration in cheese making, a process that has various outcomes including accelerating cheese maturation by removing some water thus concentrating the milk. This also helps to create that lusciously creamy mouth feel that is so loved by the devotees of this cheese style.

The milk for this luscious washed rind cheese is collected from ewes of the Argental region of France. 

Aged for thirty days, this square cheese exhibits a thin, bright orange rind. When young the flavour is rich and sweet, but as the cheese matures the stronger meaty, earthy flavours develop while the rind becomes a darker rusty orange colour. The texture is soft, velvety and sure to ooze deliciously on your cheese plate.
