Description: Cantal AOP is one of the oldest cheeses in France dating to the times of the Gaul’s rule. A well-aged Cantal Vieux has a thick crust. Due to the lengthy ripening period (ripened more than 8 months), the cheese has become more strongly flavoured and is a typical hard cheese with a firm, brittle and crumbly paste. The 8-month stay inside the cellars let Cantal develop a peppery and spicy aroma.
Serving Tip: Cantal works well with nuts, grapes and apples and can be used in salads, soups, cheese fondue or gratins.
Weight: Approx. 200g/ piece
Wine Pairing: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are a few wines that pair nicely with old Cantal.
Our cheeses can be kept for at least a week from the date of delivery. After opening the initial wrapping paper, we recommend to store the cheeses in a clean, dry cling wrap and store them in the lower compartment of the fridge which is usually not too cold or dry.
