Rigotte de Condrieu

Produced in the famous wine region of Condrieu, Rigotte is a soft goat cheese with a bloomy rind. With a finely wrinkled rind and a delicious, creamy and nutty paste, this cheese is a beautiful goat cheese.




This little raw goat’s milk is moulded using a ladle, in accordance to the regional traditions from which it was born. After approximately 10 days of maturation, its bloomy rind appears, and the paste obtains an ivory colour.
