Our Chabichou du Poitou AOP 150g


Our Chabichou du Poitou AOP Atelier de la Sèvre (150g) is a raw milk goats cheese.
It owes its shape to the piece of wood used to close wine barrels in years gone by. According to legend, its name dates back to the 8th Century when the Sarrasins were defeated after the Battle of Poitiers. When some of them settled in the region with their flocks of goats, they produced a cheese called Cheblis (goat in Arabic) and this would later become Chabichou.

l’Appellation d’Origine Protégée since 1996.

The Chabichou du Poitou AOP has enjoyed AOP status since 1996. The producer must adhere to the specific regulations for this cheese. The milk production and the maturing of the cheese must take place within the geographical area of the AOP, which broadly corresponds to the limestone areas of Haut-Poitou, extending across half of Deux-Sèvres and Vienne, as well as certain communes in the north of Charente.
