Product information

Gillot camembert gourmet unpasteurised 250g

Gillot’s camembert gourmet from unpasteurised milk, hailing from Normandy, boasts a rich history and exceptional quality.

Being named as an AOP camembert signifies that the cheese adheres to the stringent standards and regulations set forth by the Appellation d’Origine Protégée, ensuring that it is produced in a specific geographic region (Normandy) with specified traditional methods (raw milk), thereby guaranteeing its authenticity, quality, and unique characteristics. This Camembert secured a gold medal at the 2022 Concours Général Agricole, an esteemed competition orchestrated by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food in France. The competition is dedicated to recognizing the finest products and animals originating from the rich tapestry of the French terroir.

Selected among the best of Gillot’s AOP camemberts, the Gourmet edition will spend a little more time in their maturing cellars under the close supervision of Gillot’s master cheesemakers. These optimal conditions allow the camembert to mature gradually, ensuring a creamy texture and a depth of flavour that truly sets them apart.

As a raw milk cheese, Gillot’s camembert preserves the integrity of its flora, offering a taste rich in aromas and authenticity. The refinement process takes place in Gillot’s cellars under the watchful eye of their master cheesemakers, adding an extra layer of quality to this exceptional cheese. The result? A supple colour, ivory paste, creamy texture, and a flavour profile that combines, savoury, earthy, and slightly tangy notes.

Founded in 1912 in the heart of the Orne countryside, Fromagerie Gillot has been dedicated to crafting traditional Normandy cheeses from raw milk for over a century. Today, under the leadership of the Fléchard family, it stands as the last independent SME manufacturer of camembert AOP and Pont l’Evêque. The cheese factory is a staunch advocate for the authenticity of camembert de Normandie AOP and raw milk cheeses, prioritising the aromatic richness of raw milk in their products.

Gillot is dedicated to preserving French gastronomic heritage by sourcing milk within a 40 km radius from family farms committed to animal welfare and environmental sustainability. The heart of Gillot’s cheese dairy is its camembert hand-moulding workshop, where experienced moulders delicately deposit over 77,000 ladle strokes daily, blending traditional techniques with modern technology to ensure diversity, quality, and tradition.
