Maturation: 4-10 weeks
Cheese Type: Uncooked, Unpressed cheese with ash rind
Created in 1966 and now produced by Patrick Cantet, Bonde de Gatine is made using the milk of 300 goats that are fed with farm products and quality fodder only.
From the marshy Gatine area of Poitou, the cheese takes its name from an old fashioned cork ”Bonde”, traditionally used to seal barrels of wine, which also accounts for this cheese’s unique drum shape.
Ash-coated with a wrinkled rind, its firm paste is deliciously smooth and rich, bursting with a light, fruity, and earthy tang. Properly matured, Bonde displays a gorgeous dual texture between suppleness and firmness.
