The cheese-making profession generally requires many years of experience before you can claim to be able to offer a truly exceptional product. These products are often the fruit of an ancient heritage.
In the heart of the Chartreuse massif in Isère, the Francillon family has been officiating for several generations. Here, in Saint Joseph de Rivière, part of the Saint-Marcellin terroir, it produces Béret, a sort of large format of the former.
Its size makes it very delicate, but when it’s at its best, it offers undeniable pleasure. The pastry/crust ratio is in its favor compared to its “little” brother. A cloud of creamy, flowery aromas. The flavors evoke the smell of melted butter combined with dried herbs. On the palate, balance is achieved when a slight spiciness enhances the whole.
It’s a cheese you can only get from them, and we hope they make it for generations to come.
