Description:

Above the gently sloping limestone hills of Belley in the Rhône-Alpes, sits Fromagerie Guilloteau - the region’s best known cheese maker renowned for its Fromager d’Affinois range of cheeses. 

 

The technique of ultra-filtration, pioneered by the company’s founder and owner, Jean-Claude Guilloteau, along with modern lactic fermentation, are used to boost the protein and calcium levels in the curd. Cream is added for both flavour and texture before the wheels are ripened for three weeks, during which time they develop a thin rind as the curd breaks down to a silky smooth texture. 

 

Named for the golden wheat fields in the countryside (‘campagnier’), the newest addition to the Fromager d’Affinois range has a washed rind with a deep amber colour.
