This cheese is available in 1,4kg, 360g, 220g and 180g sizes.
PDO Pont-l’Evêque is a protected designation of origin in Normandy. Like all PDOs, it is associated with a precisely defined territory, a specific raw material and a specific know-how. We cannot produce PDOs elsewhere than in the defined area.
Norman cheeses go perfectly well with many French food and wine gastronomy. Our cheesmakers recommend to you some indulgent cheese alliances.
Our Graindorge PDO Pont-l’Eveque cheese is washed several times during the maturing process. This develops all of its most subtle of flavours and really emphasizes the distinctive characteristics of our terroir. Pont l’Eveque is then sorted after maturing for ten days. Each cheese passes our capable sorting machines, which monitor the quality and maturity of the cheese to ensure that consumers are guaranteed a PDO Pont-l’Eveque cheese of real exception.
