Traditional, creamery, semi-soft cheese made from blended cow's, goat's and sheep's milk. It has a shape of flattened globe with deep crater. The natural rind is smooth, glossy and it has a colour of butter. Tronchon resembles young Caerphilly. The taste is aromatic, with a background of white wine acidity. The origin of the shape is obscure but it is replicated today with moulds. The interior is bone white and has many small holes.
