chevrotin -

Chevrotin is a French cheese made with raw goat milk. The Chevrotin cheese comes from the Savoy in the Rhone-Alpes region and has been known since the 17th century. The meaning of the name "Chevrotin" is "little goat".

Chevrotin cheeses are produced in the same way as Reblochon cheese and therefore have similarities in appearance and texture. The milk used is only milk from goats that are grazed in summer in the mountains and fed on straw in the winter.

Chevrotin  cheese is placed on pine wood and matured for at least 3 weeks. During the maturation process, three times a week the cheese is reversed and washed with salt water.
