Details

The Pélardon is a little round cheese made with raw goat milk.

It's natural irregular rind changes from white/cream when it is young, to a bluish tint with maturation.

It has a simple and fresh taste and smooth texture in the early stage of maturation, which develops over time amd the texture can become more crumbly.

From ancient times, according to Pliny the Elder, cheeses from the Languedoc were very appreciated by the Roman elite. The first written record of Pélardon can be traced back to Abbot Boissier in 1756. It's name comes from the local dialect "pèbre" which means  "pepper" in reference to the spicy notes that develop when it matures.

This popular cheese has had a DOP (protected designation of origin) since 2000.
