Long Cendré Cheese
Long Cendré is a very fine and elegant raw-milk goat's milk cheese, made even deeper by aging under ashes, which makes the rind dark and slightly pleated. Its paste is firm and homogeneous with an ivory color, while its flavor is light and mild, with a good taste of goat's milk. An artisanal product produced at the Fontenille-Saint-Martin-d'Entraigues plant, between Poitiers and Saintes.
This Poitou region is the cradle of goat's cheese, where Pascal Beillevaire has entrusted Franck Redien with the task of producing and offering a range of authentic goat's milk cheeses, including the famous Chabichou du Poitou AOP

Pascal Beillevaire set out from village markets with a mission to produce dairy products as they used to be, that is, in an artisanal way and with raw milk, a key element in the production of high-quality dairy products. In France it is a real cult, in fact all cheeses to have the AOP designation must necessarily be raw milk. The reason is as follows: the link between the cow, the pastures and the artisan art specific to each region.. In fact, raw milk must be processed within a few hours of milking, which means a product that encompasses all the flavor of the production area.
Unlike Italy, where the protagonist is the producer, in France it is the affineur who plays a fundamental and very often crucial role for quality dairy products. Maturation, which takes place in quarries or caves, is quite different from aging, which in fact is carried out by the producer himself.Maturation, somewhat like the maturing of meat, is a science, where the cheese improves organoleptically, acquiring new flavors and aromas.
Beillevaire was founded in 1980 by Pascal and Claudine Beillevaire. They had 50 cows and produced white cheese, unpasteurized cream and unpasteurized butter, products sold in local markets. Now it has 20 cheese stores, 10 food halls and is present in 50 markets a week. Success and exponential growth from a small company to a major market player have not changed Pascal's mission: in fact, it is the only company in France that processes raw milk and churns butter in wooden churns.
