An exclusively farmhouse cheese, this is made with raw milk using a technique that is unique for goat cheese. It is entirely hand-made using milk from a single herd of local breeds (Alpine and Chèvre de Savoie). While its production is confidential, the skill of each producer ensures that there is a great aromatic diversity to the designation, with each Chevrotin being different. With its creamy texture, which is unusual for goat cheese, Chevrotin has a taste that people either love or loathe.
