Producer: Farmhouse Saint-Nectaire produced and matured at le Bois-Joli in Saint-Diéry (Cantal – Auvergne).
The Chassard family has a cattle that spends most of its time outside in the green fields of Auvergne and eat a very diverse flora. That’s what gives so much flavor and intensity to the milk.
They grow Montbéliardes cows which offer a milk with high potential for cheese making.

Palate: Creamy, hazelnut flavor. Delicate mushroomy/nutty taste of the rind that stays in the mouth. And yes: we DO eat the Saint-Nectaire rind!
