Cironé is distinctive not only in it’s intensely rich flavour, but also in it’s great age. Over a period of several years, the cheese is moved between caves with differing atmospheres, one containing cheese mites to assist the maturation process.
Character; a hard and crumbly cheese with unusual creaminess. Notes of roasted chicory are emphasised by a salty, sour flavour, sweetened with caramel with salt crystals. These salt crystals are called Tyrosine crystals and are amino acids which are formed in aged cheese like Parmesan. They have no flavour and aren’t fully understood but are a good sign of a properly aged cheese.
