Creamy goat cheese from the Alps


Exclusively handmade in Savoie and Haute Savoie from the milk of local Alpine and Chèvre de Savoie goats, Chevrotin is an atypical goat’s milk cheese—raw milk, pressed into a mould with a washed rind, aged for at least two weeks. Each of its 24 producers and five affineurs have their own secrets, so there is quite a lot of variety. Many are organic.
