Our soft ripened cheeses
In France, there are more than a thousand varieties of cheese, they all differ from each other by their shape, their texture and especially their taste.
Our speciality? Soft ripened cheeses. A simple but controlled manufacturing process allows our cheeses to ripen naturally once they have been moulded and drained. The result is a creamy texture when our cheeses mature.
Our cheeses are sprayed with Penicillium. This enables the growth of a fine, white bloomy rind during ripening. This bloomy rind serves to both protect the cheese and contribute to the development of its flavour. Soft ripened cheeses ripen from the outside towards the middle. This is particularly true in the case of our traditional lactic recipe: the softness appears gradually under the rind with the appearance of a chalky heart when the cheese is young.
All our cheeses are made in the heart of the Mayenne countryside in the small village of Martigne sur Mayenne.
A jewel in French gastronomy, camembert is a soft ripened cheese with a bloomy rind, made exclusively from cow's milk. At Vaubernier we have been using traditional manufacturing methods since 1912, with milk collected from within a 40km radius of the cheese dairy.
Under its fine white rind, our generous camembert unveils a chalky heart with delicate milky aromas. Throughout ripening, its texture becomes creamier and its character asserts itself.
