Chabichou du Poitou

Chabichou du Poitou

Cheese Type

The Poitou-Charentes region to the west of France is known to be the cradle of French goat cheese production. ‘Chabi’, the informal name for this petit fromage, is an interpretation of the Arabian word for young goat – ‘chebi’.  

This particular cheese has a thin wrinkled white rind when young, with a blue-grey mould forming over parts of the rind and later a reddish growth may develop. The interior is firm and snow white and will become drier with age.

It has a sweet, delicate flavour when young and will develop hazelnut characters as it ripens and eventually the stronger tangy goat flavour will dominate.
